The Mamas & Papas are strictly modernists. Just four months on the disk scene, the Dunhill Records' folk-pop foursome — Cass, Michelle, John & Dennie — has been a sales sizzler, 
first with “California Dreamin’ ” and now with “Monday Monday.” Also, the group has cut a Top 10 LP, “If You Believe Your Eyes & Ears,” which contains both of the singles 
smashes. Before heading out on a concert tour, Lou Adler, their producer, will record the Mamas & Papas for future singles and LP product. ABC-Paramount Records is the national 
distributor of the Dunhill line.

Songs For Sell 


Louis Armstrong and Astrud Gil- 
berto assure you that “Schaefer is the 
one beer to have when you’re having 
more than one,” while Glenn Yar- 
brough makes a case for Italian Swiss 
Colony Wine; Nancy Wilson, Petula 
Clark and in the months ahead, the 
Everly Bros., are the vocal standard 
bearers for Coca Cola. Other recording 
names like the Beach Boys and the 
Four Seasons are also using their ar- 
tistry and popularity to sing the praises 
of other products. 

Entertaining testimonials by record 
acts are nothing new, but the proc- 
esses by which they are being heard 
is. In greater numbers, ad agencies are 
turning directly to the music business 
to make certain that the style of their 
jingles and the artists who present 
them reflect more accurately the musi- 
cal tastes of the potential buyer of 
their accounts’ wares. In fact, many of 
the creations drummed up by music 
business factors, mainly a crop of indie 
producers, have made the line between 
a jingle sound and a pop disk sound 
indiscernible, so that adaptations of 
jingle tunes have in recent months 
made their way to the charts. 

The jingles themselves can also be 
classified as hits of a sort. Even mini- 
mum runs on the air assure a profit- 
able venture by the artist and the indie 
producer, whose company may run the 
creative gamut from providing the ma- 
terial, the arranging and actual en- 


gineering of the session. Should these 
commercials be blessed by renewals, 
“residuals” enter into the picture, add- 
ing greatly to the coffers of creative 
participants in TV or radio jingles. 

Thus, aside from their normal rou- 
tine of maintaining a flow of product 
to labels, artists and indie producers 
who are being sought out by ad agen- 
cies for easy sell approaches are 
“moonlighting” — for want of a better 
word — in an area that can often be 
truly inventive and not far off base 
from the type of things they do on a 
regular day-to-day basis. 

Participants in today’s swinging- 
sound commercials are making the 
fullest use of their resources and are, 
frankly, supplementing their income 
to no small degree. This income may 
or may not be the margin that deter- 
mines whether, for indie producers at 
least, they will continue to function, 
but there is no doubt that jingle reve- 
nues are of such magnitude as to pro- 
vide a source of major income when 
matters cool down on the consumer 
recording front. On the brighter side, 
the combination of hit records and 
well-received jingles is an added in- 
ducement to growth and experimenta- 
tion, if you will, with new ideas. 

When tradesters hear the sound of a 
jingle, they should be aware that more 
than ever it's all in the family — and an 
addition that has been long overdue.

ory committee. Wood is succeeded as 
managing director of EMI Records by 
G. N. Bridge, deputy managing direc- 
tor and a divisional director of the 
parent company. There are no plans 
to appoint a successor to Bridge. An- 
nouncing the changes, Sir Joseph 
Lockwood, Chairman of EMI Ltd. 
said: “It is important for the future 
of the EMI Group that policies and 
plans for our record business, both in 
the U.K. and overseas, should be giv- 
en full examination and be adequate- 
ly controlled. Mr. Wood is eminently 
suitable to carry out these responsi- 
I bilities.” 


Labels Act Fast On ‘ Oscar 9 Winners 


NEW YORK— “The Sound of Music” 
became the second straight film musi- 
cal to win an Oscar as “Best Picture” 
when the Academy Awards were 
handed out last week. Last year, the 
most important Oscar award went to 
“Mary Poppins.” 

The film had been up for 10 
awards, ending up with half that 
total. “Umbrellas of Cherbourg,” the 
French musical film, had four nomi- 
nations, including those for Best 
Song and Best Score, but failed to 
pick-up any Oscars. 

The “Best Song” Oscar was won by 
“The Shadow of Your Smile,” from 
“The Sandpiper.” Written by Johnny 
Mandel (his first Oscar) and Paul 
Francis Webster (his second), it is 
published by Big 3 Music, also asso-

NEW YORK — Barbra Streisand’s LP 
output has a unique streak going for 
it. All seven of the LP’s for Columbia 
Records have earned an RIAA-audited 
gold record for sales of at least $1 
million. Her latest, made last week, 
is for ‘Color Me Barbra,” featuring 
songs from her recent TV show. Pre- 
viously, gold awards went to “The 
Barbra Streisand Album,” “The Sec-

“People,” “My Name is Barbra” and 
“My Name is Barbra, Two. . . .” 


BULLETIN! 

NEW YORK — A major shake-up at 
Capitol Records Distributing Compa- 
ny’s New York branch has resulted in 
the departure of a number of the op- 
eration’s personnel, CASH BOX 
learned at press time. Telephone calls 
to the branch confirmed the fact that 
some staff members were no longer 
employed there. Reasons for this 
mass exodus could not be established 
at deadline.

ciated with the “Best Score” winner, 
Maurice Jarre, writer of the back- 
ground music for “Doctor Zhivago.” 
“Shadow” was anything but a dark 
horse, since it ran away with disk 
coverage among the other nominees. 
Some 100 recordings of the song are 
available in singles and LP releases. 

Life Ad Ready 

RCA Victor Records weeks ago 
realized the possibility that the 
“Sound of Music” could win the 
“Best Picture” award plus others. 
Life Magazine is crediting the label 
with scoring a first in magazine 
advertising when this week (25) it 
becomes the first insertion in a new 
program of guaranteed “crash” clos- 
ing. The film’s Oscar showing is high- 
lighted in a four-color ad in the April 
29 issue. Copy for the ad, prepared 
by Grey advertising closed last Tues- 
day and will appear in over seven 
million copies of Life. A four-color 
ad in Life normally closes 46 days 
prior to date of publication. A pre- 
mium-priced “fast” close usually re- 
quires 24 days. 

Columbia Certain 

Indicative of “Shadow’s” shoe-in 
quality was the announcement by 
Columbia Records last week that it 
had printed 50,000 album covers of 
an LP, “The Academy Award-Win- 
ning ‘Shadow of Your Smile’ and 
Other Great Themes” by Andre Kos- 
telanetz prior to the announcement, 
last Monday night, of the winning 
Oscar song. The label also printed 
thousands of kleen-stick, gum-backed 
stickers which will be affixed to a 
number of Columbia LP’s that con- 
tain the song, including sets by Tony 
Bennett, Andy Williams, Barbra 
Streisand, Steve Lawrence and L Roy 
Meriwether Trio.

Kruger Plans Ember Of U.S. 

NEW YORK — Ember Records, one of 
England's top indie labels, is planning 
to showcase a U.S. affiliate. 

This move is a prime factor in the 
current visit to the States — his third 
since the beginning of the year — of 
Jeff Kruger, president of the com- 
pany. 

An announcement said that “several 
interested parties” have offered 
Kruger his own label set-up in this 
country. Kruger told Cash Box that 
any arrangement would most likely 
involve a distribution deal with a 
strong indie label, with the company, 
to be called Ember International Rec- 
ords, being wholly-owned by Ember. 

Hints were reported in the English 
press that there might be a public 
flotation of Ember shares in the near 
future, in England as well as the U.S. 

The formation of Ember Records 
International Inc., is reported to be } 
the first step in this direction. In the ' 
works is a merger of all Kruger’s

Capitol Says 'Foam Donut’ Is Cartridge Boon 


HOLLYWOOD — A simple “foam do- 
nut” concept in the display of the tape 
cartridge is Capitol Records’ answer 
to many of complex merchandising 
and display problems that are said 
to be holding back sales of cartridge 
product. 

According to Oris Beucler, special 
products manager of Capitol Records 
Distributing Corp. and designer of the 
innovation, most of the industry’s 
major sales and merchandising prob- 
lems will be solved with the intro of 
CRDC’s 7" by 7" Polystrene expanded 
bead plastic package. 

The fact that the announcement of 
the device precedes the actual release 
of Capitol tape cartridge product by 
at least six months — an initial pack- 
age of 50 will come at the time the 
1967 autos are unveiled — is seen as 
being indicative of Capitol’s deep con- 
cern over the problems that confront 
the merchandising of the modest look- 
ing 8-track cartridge. 

The Polystyrene configuration is 
simply a package shaped like a 7 inch 
square donut with a 4 x 414 inch 
hole in the middle. In this space 
Capitol’s, and all of the industry’s 
standard 8-track stereo tape car- 
tridges can be inserted, wrapped, 
shipped and displayed. 

Beucler said that the “Foam Do- 
nut” — so called because of its shape 
and light weight (approximately one 
ounce) will solve the several key 
problems that now confront every 
label and dealer in the tape market: 

— The normal tape cartridge (ap- 
proximately 4 x 514 inches) is too 
small for liner notes or an explana- 
tion of the content of the tape. 

2 — There are virtually no merchan- 





Beucler & 'Foam Donut' 


disers racks or fixtures for the exist- 
ing 4 x 514 cartridge. Because of this, 
Capitol contends, many dealers do not 
| display the product and, of course, 
j have not sold it. 

3 — Because of the small size of the 
cartridge, there is a better than aver- 
age chance of loss by pilferage. Con- 
sequently, many retailers store car- 
tridges and put them behind the 
counters where they get no exposure, 
and few sales. 

4 — The 4 x 514 cartridge represents 
a problem in shipping. There is little 
protection for the small-size package 
and new shipping cartons will have 
to be designed before they can be

Distribs Get TJB Set 
By All (Travel) Means 

NEW YORK — Although Herb Alpert 
and the Tijuana Brass currently have 
two Top 10 albums, the A&M group’s 
new LP, “What Now My Love,” is 
creating a virtual pandemonium at 
the label’s distributors around the 
nation. 

In a competitive battle to insure j 
that their accounts have the disk as 
quickly as possible many distribs have 
hired an armada of trailer trucks, 
pick-ups and Volkswagons which are 
getting the albums hot from the 
pressing plants. To meet the heavy 
demands for the LP many key press- 
ing operations are stamping out 
“What Now Mv Love” on an exclusive 
basis— rejecting all other consign- 
ments until the crisis is over. 

To date, A&M has moved $1.3 mil- 
lion pieces of the LP into the market- 
place. 

Atlantic-Atco Sales Up 
100% Over Last Year 

NEW YORK — Atlantic-Atco is con- 
tinuing this year the blockbuster sales 
pace set by the firm in 1965. For the 
first 15 weeks of 1966, from Jan. 1 
to Apr. 15, sales of the firm’s records 
have run over 100 r '/ per cent ahead 
of the same period last year. During 
the first three months of 1966 nine or 
ten Atlantic-Atco singles have been 
on the charts every week, and at least 
half a dozen LP’s have been on the 
LP charts each week as well. 

The single artists who have helped 
the firm keep up its powerhouse sales 
pace during 1966 include the Young 
Rascals, whose record of “Good 
Lovin’ ” is now the number one record 
in the country. Sonny & Cher, the 
Shadows of Knight (on Dunwich), 
Deon Jackson (on Carla), Otis Red- 
ding on Volt), Wilson Pickett, Percy 
Sledge, Sam & Dame (on Stax), Mary 
Wells, the Mar-Keys (on Stax), Carla 
Thomas (on Stax) and Joe Tex (on 
Dial). 

Right now the firm is enjoying suc- 
cess with new singles by Bobby Darin 
(“Maine”), Ben E, King (“So Much

Sprinkle Of NARASites 
Talk Over Voting, Categories 

NEW YORK — Voting and what to 
vote for were spotlighted on the 
agenda at last week’s special meeting 
of the New York chapter of NARAS, 
the disk awards society, called to dis- 
cuss possible changes in Grammy 
awards procedures. 

The meeting, at Fine Studios last 
Thursday (21) evening, produced a 
highly disappointing turnout, with 
some 40 NARASites on hand out of 
a potential of some 675 chapter mem- 
bers. Joe Csida, president of the chap- 
ter, who chaired the meet, said he had 
expected an audience of 200-300 mem- 
bers. 

The discussion, running about two 
hours, is expected to result in a de- 
tailed questionnaire to be sent to the 
entire chapter, with conclusions drawn 
from the questionnaire to be for- 
warded to the New York Board and 
National Trustees of the association. 

‘Craft’ Voting 

As gleaned from the meeting, there 
is an element in NARAS who favor 
“craft” voting for final nominations. 
Csida’s opening comments, in fact, 
noted that there had been “a marked 
increase in selective voting over the 
years.” “More members vote in less 
categories,” Csida explained. Jerry 
Wexler of Atlanta Records favors 
this type of voting procedure and for- 
warded a suggestion that a “primary” 
be held at which NARAS members 
would “register” for categories in 
which they felt they could vote intel- 
ligently. The idea of “craft” voting 
was challenged by Clive Davis of Co- 
lumbia Records, who claimed that 
such a procedure could make the 
Grammy awards more prone to one 
company domination. In this regard, 
Davis said, a breakdown of affiliations 
of NARAS members would be helpful 
in determining how many work at a 
company to the number of votes for 
Grammy awards. 

George Simon, part of a NARAS 
officer panel shared by Csida, Billy 
Taylor, David Hall, Mickey Kapp and 
Dom Cerulli, said that a “craft” con- 
cept would stand a better chance as 
the membership of NARAS increases. 
Putting the “craft” idea to task was

BEHIND THE 

RECORDS 

BMI AWARDS DO TO 
SATURDAY MUSIC. INC. 

Saturday Music, Inc., was 
the worthy recipient of three 
BMI Awards, and it couldn't 
happen to three greater songs 
or more talented writers. All 
of the Award winning compo- 
sitions are natural for covers, 
so alert producers please take 
note. 

"Lover’s Concerto” by Sandy 
Linzer and Denny Randell has 
had 35 recordings released 
within the past six months. 
Certainly a great tribute to 
this beautiful song. The vari- 
ous versions of "Lover’s Con- 
certo” reveals most impres- 
sively that many arrangers 
are so talented that cover rec- 
ords are not "copies” of a hit, 
but really great NEW versions 
of a song that is already rec- 
ognized as the standard of to- 
morrow. 

"Bye, Bye, Baby” (Baby, 
Goodbye) by Bob Crewe and 
Bob Gaudio came up a hit for 
the Four Seasons. It has great 
potential as a cover. The fabu- 
lous songwriting team — Crewe 
and Gaudio have written most 
of the Four Seasons hits. 

The third of the BMI Award 
winners, “Let’s Hang On” by 
Bob Crewe, Sandy Linzer, and 
Denny Randell was a Number 
One Seller with the Four Sea- 
sons and had six covers. The 
tune also hit the British and 
Australian charts. 

It has become increasingly 
evident to recording artists 
and record producers alike 
that Saturday Music, Inc. is 
the ideal source for fresh, 
imaginative songs with univer- 
sal appeal. 

BOB CREWE'S “SILHOUETTES" 
WINS REPEAT AWARD 

Proof positive that lighten- 
ing can strike twice in the 
same spot is seen in the BMI 
Award to Bob Crewe for his 
song, "Silhouette”, written 
with Frank Slay, which is a 
big Regent Music hit. It did 
the trick this time for Her- 
man's Hermits. 


BMI 1S66 AWARDS? 

With the first quarter of 
1966 already past there is 
strong feeling about two Sat- 
urday Music, Inc., songs as 
logical contenders for the 
next BMI Awards. They are 
from the pens of the music 
industry’s most versatile writ- 
ers — Bob Crewe, Bob Guadio, 
Sandy Linzer, and Denny 
Randell. The tune "The Sun 
Ain’t Gonna Shine" by Bob 
Guadio, is England’s Number 
One hit for the Walker Broth- 
ers and is now climbing the 
charts via Smash Records in 
the USA. 

"Silver Spoon” recorded by 
the Toys is another Sandy 
Linzer, Denny Randell compo- 
sition that is prime standard 
material.

Bobby Fuller Four 



These four boys, originally from El 
Paso, have brought an almost country 
flavor to the American rock scene. 
Well known for their Mustang re- 
leases of “Love Makes A Fool Of 
You” (currently on the Top 100) and 
“I Fought The Law,” the group is 
now making a nationwide series of 
personal appearances in conjunction 
with their first cinema release, Amer- 
ican International’s “The Ghost In 
The Invisible Bikini.” The Bobby 
Fuller Four has appeared on the “She- 
bang,” "Shivaree,” “Hollywood A 
GoGo,” “Shindig,” “Lloyd Thaxton 
Show,” and “Hullabaloo” TV’ers. 
They will make their New York night 
club debut May 2 when they open at 
Ondine. 

Bobby Fuller majored in jazz at 
North Texas State for a year and the 
group’s guitarist, Jim Reese, attended 
Texas Western until leaving to join 
Bobby’s group. Dalton Powell is the 
drummer and Bobby’s brother, Randy, 
plays bass guitar. 


Frank Gallop 


Frank Gallop is one of the most dis- 
tinguished and best known voices in 
the radio and television world of the 
present day. Aside from his spending 
the last 12 years with the “Perry 
Como Show,” Gallop has appeared on 
such diverse airings as “Gangbusters,” 
“the Milton Berle Show,” “Broadway 
Open House,” "the Prudential Family 
Hour,” and "the New York Philhar- 
monic Hour.” At one point, he hosted 
his own popular NBC-TV’er called 
"Lights Out” a mystery program 
which remained on the air for 4 years. 
His “Ballad Of Irving” on Kapp is 
number 63 on this week’s Top 100. 

Gallop began his career as an an- 
nouncer on a home town outlet, 
WEEI-Boston. He made a big step 
toward success when he recorded, for 
a radio sponsor, what was to become 
the forerunner of all singing jingle 
commercials in radio and television. 
This was the first of the now famous 
“Cresta Blanca” commercials which 
are said to have revolutionized the 
form of sponsor messages within the 
industry.

NEW YORK: 


Woody Guthrie, the musical giant 
from whose fertile mind flowed such 
everlasting songs as “This Land Is 
Your Land,” “Pastures of Plenty” and 
“Hard Traveling,” plus a host of kid- 
die songs that will be remembered so 
long as there are children, was finally 
honored by the U.S. Government with 
a “Conservation Service Award” be- 
stowed bv the Department of the 
Interior. The award commemorates the 
many songs Woody wrote about the 
grandeur of this country and partic- 
ularly the twenty-six that he penned 
in honor of the building of the Bon- 
neville and Grand Coulee Dams on the 
Columbia River. As part and parcel 
of the award is the naming of a power 
sub-station after the “dust-bowl bal- 
ladeer.” Guthrie now languishes in 
the Brooklyn State Hospital, a victim,

The girls will spend the following 
week on the Apollo bill along with

are not only to be represented by 
English groups if the Creatures have 
anything to say about it. The Irish 
lads are out with “Turn Out The

Lyn Duddy and Jerry Bresler have 
been lined-up to create a night-club

a year and a half back have we been 
so captivated by a girl and her sound. 
She is — or will be — available on RCA 
Victor and her name is Darleen Carr. 
Barely sixteen and looking much 
younger she has already been signed 
to a five year contract by Walt 
Disney and you’ll be seeing her soon 
on Hullabaloo and Wonderful World 
of Color. Her voice is exact, mature 
and totally inspiring. And her single 
titled “Anybody’s Girl” (which tells 
of a good gal gone scandalous) is 
the nib perfect result of great ma- 
terial, production and arrangement. 
Credit composers Gene Eccles and 
Don McGinnis of Columbia-Screen 
Gems, A&R Director Neely Plum and 
arranger Perry Botkin Jr. for the 
best distaff record we’ve heard in 
ages. No release date set at this 
writing. But we’ll guess that long 





PETER, PAUL & MARY 

for the last 15 years, of a disease 
called Huntington’s chorea and it is 
fitting and proper that this honor be 
bestowed upon him, but at the same 
time no one should forget that in 
addition to his songs of praise, Guth- 
rie wrote many equally powerful 
songs, the likes of “Deportee,” in 
which he pointed out shortcomings of 
society and in doing so carried on, 
and has helped to perpetuate to today, 
in the persons of the innumerable 
young folksingers who with Guthrie 
as their inspiration have taken up the 
twin cudgels of poet and prophet of 
the society in \vhich they live, the 
concept of realism and honesty and 
purpose for songs. May the world 
never be without its Woody Guthries. 

With their debut outing “Gloria” 
zipping up the charts the Shadows of 
Knight opened what promises to be a 
rousirgly successful two-week stand 
at the Phone Booth. The hard-rocking 
quintet is happily not trading on to- 
day’s chart items for their repertoire, 
but are either writing or adapting 
little known or unknown songs to 
their loud, funky, highly infectious 
rhythms and as a result of which are 
drawing in clubgoers both to dance 
to and to listen to their music. It 
wouldn’t be any surprise if they were 
invited back. 

A New York group which is making 
things happen in Miami is the Hu- 
mans. The group, which is signed to 
Audition Records has just cut its first 
sides and the results “Tage A Taxi” 
and “Warning" will he released during 
the rext two weeks with national 
distribution being handled by Circa. 
Audition’s other rock group, the 
Heard, has an initial outing “Stop It 
Baby” and “Laugh With the Wind" 
is reportedly starting to show some 
Southern action. 

Mel Torme leaves for Japan on May 
11th. This will be the chanter’s first 
trip to the Far East and he’ll stay 
there until the 28th. . . . Sol Abrams 
notes that when Gladys Shelly’s “How 
Did He Look” came out on Eydie 
Gorme’s new LP it brought the total 
of artists who have recorded the tune 
to 150. . . . Merrec’s Jerry Ross 
reports that Sarah Vaughn’s “A 
Lover’s Concerto" is being spun on 
R&B, Top 40, good music and jazz 
outlets. What more can you ask for? 
. . . Lou Rawls, who concluded an 
Apollo stint last Thursday, returns to 
New York with Jimmy Smith for a 
Carnegie Hall date on May 14. Lou's 
current LP is titled "Lou Rawls Live”. 
. . . The Toys make their N.Y. club 
debut at the Phone Booth (May 2). 


QUADRANGLE CREATURES 

ting tons of action with his deck of 
“Mr. Zero” by Half A Sixpence. Eddie 
is currently working his way through 
the Northeast. . . . 

The Quadrangle just finished a 
highly successful two week stand at 
“Arthur.” Ray West will have the 
quartet work on a host of additional 
new material during the coming days. 

Peter, Paul and Mary’s Peter Yar- 
row spent an afternoon in the Cash 
Box offices last week, and outlined 
some of the group future plans includ- 
ing the introduction of new instru- 
ments into their sessions to broaden 
their sound and in effect add another 
voice to the group. The new sounds 
will not just result from spur of the 
moment ideas, but will be based on a 
real relation of the particular instru- 
ment to the particular song, as in the 
inclusion of the sitar while working 
with Indian music. Peter is very high 
on the idea of bringing something of 
value to a song if one is to adopt it, 
and it seems that he has a valid 
point since history tells us that it is 
the truly artistic piece and not the 
crass copy that has sustaining value. 

Joe Sherman is proud of his produc- 
tion and arrangement of the new 
George Maharis’ “New Route" LP for 
Epic. Poe’s “Happiness Is” single by 
his Arena Brass is another good item. 

. . . The Denims, who are opening at 
Ondines, will double opening night 
(27) at Cheetah. . . . Folk singers 
Carolyn Hester and Pete Seeger will 
do a benefit concert at Carnegie Hall 
on May 11. 

Currently scoring at the Village’s 
Bitter End are the Womenfolk. . . . 
Buzz Willis currently working with 
Joe Cuba’s “Preublo” which is getting 
loads of R&B action- in both N.Y. and 
Chicago. Another potent piece is 
Wayne Anthony’s “You Ain’t 
Wrapped Too Tight.” 

HOLLYWOOD: 

During the past year a portion of 
this space has been devoted to fore- 
casting the future for several bright 
new talents. We’ll, of course, forever 
recall the successful divinities and 
have already forgotten the bonehead 
bloopers. Unless we’re mistaken we 
were first to herald the happenstance 
of Sonny and Cher, the flight of the 
Byrds and the prodigious poetry of 
Bob Lind. Just a few weeks ago we 
described the dubious diva deviltry of 
one Elva Miller who, we are told, is 
already one of the most celebrated 
names at the Capitol Tower. 

But not since Warners VP Joe 


HUMANS 

before the 4th of July R.C.A. Victor 
will be sending up some fizgig whizz- 
bang cracker bon bons for this one. . . . 

Our incognito correspondent cov- 
ered the abbreviated Phil Ochs and 
Cathy and Carol stand at the Ash 
Grove last week and reports that Ochs 
was “outstanding” but the duo was 
less than absolute. He describes them 
as “the cliches of the pre-pubertal 
folk singers replete with cup of coffee, 
long straight hair, disdainful distant 
smirk and detached blank stare." 
Their material — “ballads of droning 
sameness and a morbid repertoire de- 
signed to drive all but the most 
fanatic away.” Ochs, on the other 
hand, is “a haunting if not overly 
commercial artist. He doesn’t seem 
to use tricks of any kind. His images 
are beautiful — his tunes a delight. 
And he’s in a bag of his own.” Our 
reviewer was particularly taken with 
a song titled “The Party" and im- 
pressed with the ballads “Cross My 
Heart”, “Joe Hill” and another tune 
dedicated to the Marines’ landing at 
Santa Domingo. . . . The Four Tops, 
who have just closed after a success- 
ful ten night turn at The Trip, demon- 
strated the reasons for sales of sev- 
eral million on Motown during the 
past two years. Backed by a six piece 
combo which threatened to drown 
them on occasion they fought back 
admirably with “Baby, I Need "Your 
Lovin’ ”, “I Can’t Help Myself” and a 
half a dozen more of their Motown 
favorites adding some skillful dance 
routines to the approval of the open- 
ing night crowd. It’s a polished and 
rewarding act and deserving of the 
sci earns which also made it difficult to 
catch the practiced nuances of Levi 
Stubbs and Co. . . . Our “West Coast 
Girl of the W’eek” is a teenage darling 
with a huge and sure larynxed sound. 
Just 18 and celebrating her initial 
album for MGM, Susan Rafey hails 
from New Jersey but visited here 
just long enough for L.A. to fall 
under the spell of her world. The 
title of the album is “Hurt So Bad’ 
and we are — now that she’s on her 
way home. . . . Derek Taylor may 
describe the offices as “Herb’s Place” 
but it’ll always be “Jerry’s Joint” to 
us — that’s A&M’s spot on _ Sunset

be guesting on “The Magic of Broad- 
casting”, a special one hour telecast 
on Sunday, May 1st at 10:00 P.M.

NEW YORK — Merchandisers of “fake

piled without permission of the copy- 
right owners, received a strong shock 
in N.Y. Federal Court (18) when Bert 
Rose was convicted on all 60 counts

such case tried in a U.S. Federal

NEW YORK— Nick Cortale has been 
appointed promotion manager on the 
staff of Columbia Records Sales, 
according to an announcement by 
Don England, the firm’s region man- 
ager in New York. 

In his new capacity, Cortale will 
work in close association with Frank 
Campana, who is also a promotion 
manager for CRS. They will assume 
responsibilities over all promotion and 
artists’ relations at the CRS New 
York-Newark office. Cortale will be 
primarily responsible for promotion 
involving Columbia single records. 


that Rose published more than 46,000 
“fake books” which he sold to mu- 
sicians for prices ranging around $35 
per copy. Among the key witnesses 
for the Government was Burton Lane, 
prexy of the American Guild of 
Authors & Composers and composer 
of the score of the current main- 
stem musical, “On A Clear Day You 
Can See Forever.” Lane demonstrated, 
via a piano recital, how some of the 
music in the “fake books” infringed 
on his compositions. 


Cortale joins Columbia Records 
Sales with twenty years’ experience 
in the advertising and promotion 
fields. 

Johnny Tillotson Set

NEW YORK — Johnny Tillotson will

Japan’s more popular records in 1965 
(he received Japan’s Fujiyama Award 
as that country’s favorite foreign 
singer). Tillotson will have a cameo 
role in the Nikkatsu production. 


NEW YORK — A new line of Master- I

vides the listener with brilliant recep- 
tion from foreign countries.

Pick of the Week 


DID YOU EVER HAVE TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND? (2:00) 
(Faithful Virtue, BMI — Sebastian] 

DIDN’T WANT TO HAVE TO DO IT (2:06) 

[Faithful Virtue, BMI — Sebastian] 

LOVIN’ SPOONFUL (Kama Sutra 209) 

The Lovin’ Spoonful reached the number one position with “Day- 
dream” and there’s no reason why this excellent follow-up, “Did You 
Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind,” can’t also develop into a block- 
buster. This one’s an easy-going; lyrical blues-tinged item which claims 
that romantic decisions are extremely difficult to make. “Didn’t Want To 
Have To Do It” is a tender, slow-moving emotion-charged tearjerker. 


CRYING MY HEART OUT (3:14) [AcufT-Rose, BMI-Melson. Mathis] 
SHORT ON LOVE (2:00) [ AcufT-Rose. BMI— Loudermilk] 
NEWBEATS (Hickory 1387) 

The Newbeats, who recently had “Shake Hands (And Come Out 
Crying),” should move up in the charts in leaps and bounds with this 
commercial newie tagged “Crying My Heart Out.” The side is a 
rollicking, fast-moving rhythmic ode about a love-sick guy who spends 
his days singing the blues for his ex-gal. “Short On Love” is a funky, 
quick-paced bluesy romancer. 


BETTER USE YOUR HEAD (2:55) 
(South Mountain, BMI — Randazzo, Pike] 


STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT 
(3:20) [Champion & Roosevelt, 
BMI — Kaemfert, Singleton. 
Snyder] 

BUT NOT TODAY (2:48) 

I Champion & Roosevelt, BMI — 
Kaempfert, Radcliffe, Scott] 

BERT KAEMPFERT 
(Decca 31945] 


STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT 
(2:24) [Champion & Roosevelt, 
BMI — Kaemfert, Singleton. 
Snyder] 

THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM 
(2:17) [Sam Fox, ASCAP — 
Darion, Leigh] 

JACK JONES (Kapp 755] 


THE WONDER OF IT ALL (2:43) 

[South Mountain, BMI — Randazzo, Pike] 

LITTLE ANTHONY & IMPERIALS (Veep 1228) 

Little Anthony and the Imperials should move up the hitsville path 
1-2-3 with this blue-ribbon entry on the reactivated Veep label. The 
“plug” lid here, “Better Use Your Head,” is a slow starting, effectively- 
building pop-r&b handclapper about a fella who tells his gal that she 
shouldn’t reject him without some serious second thoughts. “The Wonder 
Of It All” is a pretty, slow-moving laconic blueser. 


Both Bert Kaempfert and Co. and Jack Jones can do tremendous biz 
with their impressive versions of “Strangers In The Night” from the 
soon-to-bow Universal flick, “A Man Could Get Killed.” The ^orkster 
gives the easy-going lyrical romancer a slick, shufflin’ sweet ’n’ sour 
sans-vocal send-off while Jones’ sincere reading of the plaintive lyric 
should also please many programmers. Eye ’em both. 


QUARTER TO THREE (1:45) 

[Rock, BMI — Guida, Barge, Royster, Anderson] 

SHE’S GOTTA BE BOSS (2:10) 

TCrazy Cajun, BMI — Sahm] 

SIR DOUGLAS (Tribe 8317) 


JUST A LITTLE MISUNDERSTANDING (2:39) 
[Jobete, BMI — Broadnax, Wonder, Paul] 

DETERMINATION (2:39) [Jobete, BMI— Robinson] 


Sir Douglas should create plenty of sales activity (he recently hit 
with “The Rains Came”) with this top-notch Tribe outing labeled 
“Quarter To Three.” Tune’s a pulsating, fast-moving, infectious ‘party’ 
item with a slick danceable beat. “She’s Gotta Be Boss” is a rhythmic, 
blues-tinged warm-hearted romancer. 


CONTOURS (Gordy 7052) 

The Contours should do land-office pop-r&b business with this ultra- 
commercial new Gordy release. The “A” side here, “Just A Little 
Misunderstanding,” is a hard-driving, funky, rhythmic weeper about an 
unfortunate guy whose gal has just given him the gate. Bottom cut, 
“Determination,” is tradition-oriented blues handclapper. 


THE LAST WORD IN LONESOME IS ME (2:09) [Tree, BMI— Miller] 

MARY CLAIRE MELVINA REBECCA JANE (2:10) 

[Five Sisters, BMI — M. & S. Nix] 

EDDY ARNOLD (RCA Victor 8818) 

The Victor mainstay dips into Roger Miller’s prolific bag of songs 
for this new release which is obviously destined to zoom in both the 
pop and country departments. The tune, “The Last Word In Lonesome 
Is Me,” is a tender, laconic, slow-shufflin’ weeper dished-up in an ap- 
pealing heartfelt style by Arnold. “Mary Claire Melvina Rebecca Jane” 
is a pleasant, medium-paced, romantic ditty. 


GIRL IN LOVE (3:01) [Beechwood, BMI— King, Kelley] 

WHAT MAKES YOU SO BAD 
YOU WEREN’T BROUGHT UP THAT WAY (2:20) 
[Beechwood, BMI — King, Kelley] 

OUTSIDERS (Capitol 5646) 



Although the Outsiders are still scoring with their reputation-estab- 
lishing “Time Won’t Let Me” smasheroo, this top-drawer follow-up 
"Girl In Love,” looms as another sure-fire giant. The side is a hauntingly 
melodic, slow-moving lament about an unfortunate gal who gets a 
tremendous let-down on her wedding day. “What Makes You So Bad 
You Weren’t Brought Up That Way” is a rollicking, hard-driving 
infectious handclapper. 


1 KNOW YOU BETTER THAN THAT (2:45) [Unart, BMI— Goldsboro] 
WHEN YOUR LOVE HAS GONE (2:35) [Unart. BMI— Goldsboro] 
BOBBY GOLDSBORO (United Artists 50018) 


Bobby Goldsboro’s long hit-chain should speedily add another link 
with this first-rate self-penned success candidate tabbed “I Know You 
Better Than That.” Tune is a hard-driving, chorus-backed, funky, blues- 
soaked rocker about a lad w T ho serves notice on his gal that she’d better 
watch her step. "When Your Love Has Gone” is a plaintive, slow-moving 
emotional heart-breaker.

SCROOEY MOOEY (2:33) 

[Tash. BMI— Howard] 

TIME MARCHES ON (2:27) 

[Tash, BMI — Fox, Howard] 

PEELS (Karate 527) 

The Peels, who skyrocketed to national popularity with “Juanita 
Banana,” should make it two-in-a-row with this excellent follow-up 
labeled “Scrooey Mooey.” This one’s a rousing, medium-paced “Wooly 
Bully”- ish bucolic novelty with some clever gimmick sound effects. 
“Time Marches On” is a hard-driving, bluesy, infestious twister. 


WHY AM I LONELY (2:13) 

[Chevis, BMI — Stewart] 

LOVE ME (2:53) 

[Chevis, BMI — DeMell, DeSanto] 

BILLY STEWART (Chess 1960) 

Billy Stewart is a cinch to jump into both the pop and r&b sales 
spotlight with this top-notch self-penned Chess entry tabbed “Why Am 
I Lonely.” The side is a tender, medium-paced heartthrobingly plantive 
blues-soaked woeser. The undercut, “Love Me,” is an infectious, rhythmic, 
traditional plea for romance. 


WE’RE ACTING LIKE LOVERS (2:20) 

[Icarus, ASCAP — Feldman, Klinger] 

LONG LOST LOVE (2:57) 

[Bildo & Deadalus, BMI — Grant] 

SPELLBINDERS (Columbia 43611) 

The Spellbinders can duplicate their pop-r&b click of “Chain Reaction” 
in short order with this potent original labeled “We’re Acting Like 
Lovers.” Cut is a rhythmic, effectively-building romancer about a lucky 
twosome who seem aptly suited to each other. “Long Lost Love” is a 
slow-shufflin’ tale which concers a love affair which ends up on the rocks. 


I LOVE YOU DROPS (2:45) 

[Moss Rose, BMI — Anderson) 

SUNNY SKIES (2:49) 

[Metric, BMI — Gonzalez, Corral] 

VIC DANA (Dolton 319) 

Consistency should be Vic Dana’s middle name and this excellent 
re-working of Bill Anderson’s current country hit, “I Love You Drops,” 
should garner plenty of pop spins. The songster dishes-up the romantic 
waltzer in a sincere, heartfelt style. “Sunny Skies” get a melodic treat- 
ment on the flip.

Pick of the Week 


ONE TOO MANY MORNINGS (2:30) 

IM. Witmark, ASCAP— Dylan] 

SHE REIGNS (2:50) 

[Taracrest, BMI — Elliott, Durand] 

BEAU BRUMMELS (Warner Bros. 5813) 

The Beau Brummels kick of their new Warner Bros, career in ex- 
cellent stead with this mighty promising Bob Dylan-penned tune tabbed 
“One Too Many Mornings.” Tune is a rollicking, raunchy blues-soaked 
folkish lament with an infectious repeating, danceable riff. “She Reigns” 
is a low-key, slow-shufflin’ laconic ballad. 


YOU’RE STILL A SQUARE (2:26) IPamco, BMI— King] 
TORMENTED (2:39) [ Mills, ASCAP— Hudson] 

B. B. KING (ABC-Paramount 10766) 

The vet pop-blues hitmaker is in fine form on this new money-in-the- 
bank entry called “You’re Still A Square.” The tune is a low-down, 
funky, slow-shufflin’ ode about a guy who thinks that his girl friend 
should become a bit more sophisticated. On the coupler King offers a 
soulful reading of “Tormented.” 


I’M MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES AGAIN (2:27) 

TScreen Gems-Columbia, BMI — Miller, Atkins] 

TODAY WILL BE YESTERDAY TOMORROW (2:10) 

[Screen Gems-Columbia, BMI — Lawrence, Greenfield] 

STEVE LAWRENCE (Columbia 43610) 

Steve Lawrence can quickly get back in the money-making singles 
groove with this power-packed Columbia stand dubbed “I’m Making The 
Same Mistakes Again.” The tune is a tender, medium-paced, chorus- 
backed bluesy ode about a love-sick fella who plays the fool when it 
comes to a certain special gal. “Today Will Be Yesterday Tomorrow” 
is a haunting woeser with a nostalgic, years-back sound. 


I SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT HER HOME (2:40) 

[Chardon & Linda’s World, BMI — Kornfeld, Duboff] 

GOIN’ LOVIN’ WITH YOU (2:11) [Chardon, BMI— Duboff, Kornfeld] 
CHANGIN’ TIMES (Philips 40368) 

Here’s an off-beat piece of material called “I Should Have Brought 
Her Home” which should take the Changin’ Times up the hitsville path 
with lightning speed. It’s a plaintive, slow-moving fusion of classical 
themes about an unhappy fella who missed the romantic boat with a 
certain special gal. “Goin’ Lovin’ With You” is a pulsating, uptempo 
warm-hearted teen-angled romancer. 


MAME (2:15) [E.H. Morris, ASCAP— Herman] 

WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN [P.D.] 

LOUIS ARMSTRONG (Mercury 72574) 

Ixrnis Armstrong could well have another “Hello, Dolly”-type block- 
buster on his hands with this superior rendition of the oft-cut “Marne” 
from the soon-to-bow main-stem musical of the same name. The vet- 
eran dishes-up the warm-hearted nostalgic romancer in his distinctive, 
full-bodied style. On the flip Satchmo offers a rousing version of “When 
The Saints Go Marching In.” 


Newcomer Pick 


YOUNGER GIRL (2:27) [Faithful Virtue, BMI — Sebastian] 
GONE FOR AWHILE (2:42) [Cicconi. Ryan] 

CRITTERS (Kapp 752) 

The Critters make a potent bid into the “Younger Girl” sweepstakes 
(there ’re already versions out by the Hondells and the Warmest Spring) 
with this Kapp release. The crew gives the warm-hearted romancer a 
tender, slow-moving imaginative send-off. Tremendous potential here. 
The flip’s a lyrical easy-going rendition of “Gone For Awhile.” 


JERRY FULLER (Challenge 59329) 

• TURN TO ME (2:32) [4-Star, 
BMI — Fuller] Warm emotion 
filled ode with Fuller interpreting the 
pretty lyric with depths of sincerity.

ing shouter. 


\\ IN MENIFEE (Fraternity 963) 

• REYNOSA JAIL (2:58) 
[Counterpart, BMI — Menifee] 
Soft haunting chant backed by a gen- 
tle infectious ork. The lyricai sounds 
should earn tons of attention for Men- 
ifee in no time at all. 

(B-f) I’M RUNNING AROUND 
(2:33) [Counterpart, BMI — 
Manifee] Driving sound for a backer. 



JIMMY INTERVAL 

(Columbia 43616) 

• GOT A DATE WITH AN 
ANGEL (2:10) [Chappell & 
Ross Junguniekel, ASCAP — Grey, 
Miller, Walker, Tunbridge] Newcomer 
Jimmy Interval should create plenty 
of excitement with this top-notch re- 
working of the sturdie. The songster 
treats the warm-hearted romancer in 
an infectious, chorus-backed, effec- 
tively-building style. Both Top 40 and 
middle-of-the-road potential.

ASCAP] Scatman Crothers is a nat- 
ural to stimulate loads of action with

sating rendition of the popular nov- 
elty from the recent “New Alice In 
Wonderland” TV special. Eye it.

pretty rhythms back here.

PEARL BAILEY (Columbia 43588) 

• MAME (2:00) [E. H. Morris, 
ASCAP — Herman] Among 
pop buyers Pearl Bailey has a long:, 
loyal following, which should be out 
in force to pick up this version of the 
theme from the new Broadway main- 
stemmer. Heavy airplay can be ex- 
pected for this highly entertaining 
deck. 

(B-f) IF MY FRIENDS COULD 
SEE ME NOW (2:04) [No- 
table, ASCAP — Fields, Coleman] 
Flip is another very listenable, rag- 
time effort by the artist. 


MINZI BERRY (Score 1006) 

• THOSE TEARDROPS IN 
YOUR EYES (2:43) [Aronel, 
BMI — Evretts, Towns] Minzi Berry 
can look forward to nice reaction to 
this outing on the New York-based 
Score label. Potent, soulful wailing by 
the lark is enhanced by a funky vocal 
and ork backing, giving the side 
plenty of appeal to r&b fans. 

(B-f) DON’T YOU DARE TO CRY 
(2:16) [Roterite, Zanzi, BMI

Jacobs] An infectious opening leads 
into a smooth vocal job on this side 
by the group. The swinging sound

[Ananga Ranga, BMI — Blue] 
Even more danceability on the flip. 


CHAPS (Paula 236) 

• FORGET ME (2:07) [Su-Ma, 
BMI — Bochette] The Chaps

top-flight vocal workout makes the 
deck eligible for big reaction from 
teen buyers. 

(B-f) TELL ME (2:16) [Su-Ma, 
BMI — Matlock] More of the 
same excellent stuff here. 


DON & GOO DTI MES (Jerden 805) 

• BLUE TURNS TO GREY 
(2:17) [Immediate, BMI — 
Richard Jagger] A highly attractive 
reading by Don and the Goodtimes 
could turn this deck into a real

more of the same throbbing sound. 


JIMMIE RODGERS (Dot 16861) 

• IT’S OVER (2:37) [Honey-

ON (2:30) [Fling, BMI— D.,

with r&b spinners and buyers. The 
potent beat may also make it big with

Jones] Easy-going, building blueser 
here. 


BEATSTALKERS (Press 5001) 

• GET A BETTER HOLD ON 
(2:10) [Lowery, BMI — South]

whole bunch of coin. A driving beat 
lends an added amount of emphasis to

(B-f) LEFT RIGHT LEFT (2:10) 
[Prancer, BMI — Scott] An- 
other pounder on the flip.

( Parrot 40,001 ) 

• DON’T STOP LOVING ME 
BABY (2:10) [January, BMI 
— Newman, Hirst, Williams] After 
making good noise with their “Mirror

London Sets Classic LP's 

NEW YORK — London Records has is- 
1 sued a classical release, which fea- 
tures, in addition to five albums by 
conductor Ernest Ansermet with 
L’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, a 
two-LP package, featuring Marilyn I 
Horne. 

Miss Horne, performs a broad 
cross-section of arias from the operas 
of Rossini, Bellini, Beethoven, Gluck, 
Gounod, Meyerbeer and Verdi. In the 
album, which is titled, “Souvenir Of A 
Golden Era,” she is heard with the 
Geneva Opera Chorus and L’Orchestre 
de la Suisse Romande, Henry Lewis 
conducting. 

Another highlight of the release is 
the Bruckner Symphony No. 4 (“Ro- 
mantic”) by the London Symphony 
under its new permanent conductor 
Istvan Kertesz. 

Ansermet and L’Orchestre de la 
! Suisse Romande are represented with 
five new LP’s. One offers a collection 
of some of the works of Berlioz; an- 
other contains Ravel’s “Daphnis And 
Chloe,” while a third offers selected 
works of Debussy. The fourth Anser- 
met set includes “Symphony No. 2 In 
C Major” and “Manfred Overture” by 
Schumann while the final set contains 
Mendelssohn’s “Symphony No. 4 in A 
Major (“Italian”), “The Hebrides 
Overture (“Fingal’s Cave”), “Ruy 
Bias Overture” and “The Fair 
Melusine Overture.” 

London Records “Imports” Division 
has also announced a varied and ex- 
tensive new release from the catalogs 
: of L’Oiseau-Lyre, Das Alte Work 
i (from Telefunken), Argo and Societe 
de Francaise du Son, according to Leo 
Hofberg, manager of London’s Special 
Products Division. 

Hofberg, pointed to a special high- 
light of the month’s release from the 
French L’Oiseau-Lyre group. This 
three-LP package features the first 
recording of Jean Philippe Rameau’s 
“Hippolyte Et Aricie.” 

The “Hippolyte et Aricie” unit is 
one of four new L’Oiseau-Lyre origi- 
nated sets. Among the half dozen new 
albums from Societe Francaise du Son 
is “The Olympic Games” (Les Jeux 
Olimpigues) by the 17th century com- 
poser, Jean Joseph Mouret. The re- 
, cording is a winner of the Grand Prix 
du Disque. 

From the British Argo group, 
which contains 17 new releases, come 
six volumes in the line’s “The Poet 
Speaks” series, recorded in association 
with the Poetry Room of the Lamont 
Library at Harvard University. In ad- 
dition to this assortment, is the com- 
memorative set, “Let Erin Remem- 
ber,” released in conjunction with the 
50th anniversary of Ireland’s Easter 
uprising. 

In addition, there is a key folk set, 
“The Ballad Of John Axon,” a radio 
ballad written by Ewan MacColl and 
Peggy Seeger and produced in co- 
operation with the BBC. Of musical 
importance among the Argo listings is 
a recording of Haydn’s “Mass In B 
Flat Major,” featuring various artists. 

German product from Das Alte 
Werk consists of eight new releases, 
featuring “Florid-Song And Viola D 
Gamba Music Of England,” from that 
country’s 17th century repertoire. 
Hofberg stressed that the entire 
“Import” catalog is enjoying a sub- 
stantial and increasing demand at the 
college level. “We have found that 
our wide assortment of material is 
successfully meeting college needs 
and tastes,” he said.

CBS Has Strongest 
1st Qtr. In History 

NEW YORK — The Columbia Broad- 
casting System, parent firm of Colum- 
bia Records, has completed its 
strongest first quarter on record and 
expects record sales and earnings for 
the year, William S. Paley, told the 
company’s annual meeting last week 
( 20 ). 

The firm’s sales for the period 
totaled $192 million against $166 mil- 
lion a year ago, while earnings rose 
from $11.6 million to $14.9 million, a 
jump of 28 per cent. This means a 
rise between 57 cents a share and 73 
cents a share. 

Paley told shareholders that CBS 
was not looking for a union with a 
larger corporation such as the one 
recently formed between ITT and 
ABC.

ness. The plaques were in the form of replicas of the “Frank Sinatra — A Man

Record Productions. This photo of (left to right) Mike Maitland, the company’s

Merco Earnings Up 41 % 
Sales Rise 26% In 1965 

NEW YORK — Merco Enterprise, the 
large, Garden City, L.I. -based rack- 
jobber, reported earnings of $358,343 
for the year ended Dec. 31, 1965, an 
increase of 41% over the previous 
year’s $255,089 figures. 

The company’s sales rose to $8,143,- 
131 in 1965, a jump of 41% over last 
year’s $6,543,500 take. Earnings per 
share increased to $1.02 over .72 cents 
in 1964. 

Merco sells records to approximate- 
ly 100 retail record departments and 
40 “junior” sized departments (the 
latter in variety stores and college 
book stores) in 24 states. In addition, 
the firm’s wholly-owned subsidiaries 
operate 29 leased record departments 
in discount centers in N.Y., N.J., 
Conn., and Md. 

Jack Grossman, president of Merco, 
feels that the 1965 figures, which were 
the highest in the company’s history, 
will be surpassed in 1966 through ex- 
panded diversification and the addi- 
tion of both leased and serviced-only 
record departments.

Request Fills Orders 
At The Photo Show 

NEW YORK — The camera bug who 
attended the recent photographer’s 
show at the New York Coliseum was 
not only confronted with visual splen- 
dors, but aural as well. Latter cate- 
gory was provided by Hans Lengs- 
felder, head of Request Records, a 
specialty line, who took exhibit space, 
which, he noted, paid off. 

A phono played what Lengsfelder 
felt and advertised as LP’s that were 
“ideal background music for your 
movies and slides.” Interested passers- 
by were given the opportunity to order 
this product or any Request LP for 
that matter. The hits of the week-long 
show, Lengsfelder noted, were “40 
Favorite Irish Melodies,” “Guitars Of 
Portugal,” “Folk Songs Of Turkey,” 
“Forty Favorite Scottish Melodies,” 
“German Hunting Songs,” “The Most 
Fabulous Gypsies” and “The Soul Of 
A Gypsy.” 

Besides its sturdy line of interna- 
tional product, Request — celebrating 
its 15th anniversary this year — will 
soon offer a line of dramatic LP’s. By 
good fortune, Lengsfelder noted, 
many of the works star Robert Culp, 
featured with Bill Cosby on the popu- 
lar TV spy thriller, “I Spy.” 


TRO To Push 'Joyful Noise' 

NEW YORK— The Richmond Organi- 
zation is launching a major drive on 
tunes from the upcoming B'way score 
of “A Joyful Noise” by Oscar Brand 
and Paul Nassau. Before its Autumn 
opening in New York, the show will i 
engage in a summer-long tour of the I 
musical tents. TRO is releasing the 
gospel oriented title song, “A Joyful j 
Noise,” and “I Say, Yes, Yes, Yes” j 
immediately. 

This show, which will star John 
Raitt, is the first B’way offering by 
the Brand/Nassau team. Brand is well 
! known in the folk field as a composer- 
performer and Nassau has written for 
“New Faces” and various off-Broad- j 
way productions. 

Raitt has learned to play the guitar 
for his role as Shack Motley in the 
18-song show. The story line deals 
with a folk singer from Appalachia 
who makes his way to Nashville and 
is molded into a legend in the process 
of achieving stardom.

NEW YORK— Fan Clubs U.S.A., an

ically handle all fan mail, fan clubs,

ing their client’s name. 

The new officers of the corporation 
are Seymour Rosenzweig, president, 
Joey Sasso, v.p., and Marvin Cohen, 
treasurer. The firm is housed in the 
penthouse of New York’s Shelton 
Towers Hotel at 525 Lexington Ave. 


Musicor Inks Paul Tripp 
For Kiddie Album Series 

NEW YORK— Paul Tripp, star of 
TV’s “Birthday House” series, has 
been signed by Musicor Records for a 
series of albums featuring the widely- 
known “Mr. I. Magination,” a charac- j 
ter Tripp created some years ago and 
which was successful in radio, TV 
and recordings. 

Tripp’s first “Birthday House” LP 
for Musicor, issued last fall, sold 
close to the 100,000 mark through an 
arrangement with the E. J. Korvette 
New York stores. His second set in 
the “Birthday House” series, to be 
released next fall, and to be available 
through all retail outlets, features the 
entire cast and offers games as well 
as stories. 

Tripp’s first LP in the new “Mr. 

I. Magination” series will be issued 
in the early fall and will kick off the 
label’s new kiddie line. The albums 
will deal with subjects close to the 
heart of every moppet. The first is 
tabbed “The Train,” while the second 
is called “Billy On A Bike.”

Newport To Host 
First Opera Festival 

NEW YORK — George Wein, producer 
of the Newport festivals, has an- 
nounced the program for the first 
Newport Opera Festival. New York’s 
Metropolitan Opera Company is to 
present a series of 4 operas in con- 
cert performances at Newport from 
July 12 to July 16. The festival will 
open with Puccini’s “La Boheme” fea- 
turing Licia Albanese, Laurel Hurley, 
and Barry Morell. “Carmen,” “Lucia 
Di Lammermoor,” and “Aida” will 
also be done. 

A series of workshops is planned 
which will include discussion and mod- 
els of the new Metropolitan Opera 
House, a daily operalogue of the eve- 
ning’s opera, percussion demonstra- 
tion, and brass ensemble. There will 
be afternoon recitals by the young 
artists of the Met. 

It is hoped that the informal at- 
mosphere of the festival will allow 
both the artists and the audience to 
seek and find a close relationship to 
one another, and thereby enhance the 
appreciation for this form of musical 
expression.

Victor Inks U.S.'s First 
Permanent Chamber Symph. 

NEW YORK— What is believed to 
be America’s first permanent chamber 
symphony, the Chamber of Philadel- 
phia, conducted by Anshel Brusilow, 
will record exclusively for RCA Vic- 
tor Records. Yet to perform, the new 
group was viewed by Roger Hall, 
manager of Red Seal A&R, as filling 
a “need in this country which pre- 
viously could be filled only by import- 
ing one of the many chamber orches- 
tras of Europe . . .” Howard Scott, 
Red Seal A&R producer, will super- 
vise recording sessions.

was associate concert master of the 
Cleveland Orchestra and in 1958 be- 
came concert master of the Philadel-

ous well-received chamber concerts. 
Through his efforts, the Chamber 
Symphony of Philadelphia has come 
into being. President of the organiza- 
tion is Philadelphia financier Carl 
Stern, and manager is Samuel Flor. 

For its first season, the Symphony 
will present more than 100 concerts in 
Philadelphia and New York during a 
10-week national tour. 

The 36 players, chosen from audi- 
tioning more than 400 musicians, con- 
stitute a full complement of strings, 
woodwinds, brass and percussion, and 
programming for the orchestra will 
range from masterpieces of the ba- 
roque and romantic repertory to con- 
temporary literature for small ensem- 
bles. 

Composer Richard Yardumian’s 
“Mass in English,” commissioned by 
Fordham University as part of its 
125th anniversary celebration, will be 
given a premiere performance by the 
Philadelphia players. 

The orchestra begins its career with 
a concert in Philadelphia Oct. 2, and 
will be first heard in New York on 
Oct. 6.

GEORGE SPONHALTZ 


HOLLYWOOD — Brown Meggs, vice

Manager at Capitol Records Distribu- 
ting Corp., has announced the ap- |

ager, effective May 1. 

In his new position, Sponhaltz will 
be responsible to Meggs for various 
merchandising department projects 
relating to Capitol Classics, Capitol 
of the World and the 8-Track Tape- 
Cartridge line. In addition to his 
various Capitol projects, Sponhaltz 
will also continue to work with 
CRDC’s Angel merchandising com- 
mittee in the planning of marketing 
and advertising activities for the 
classical label. 

Sponhaltz joined the staff of Capi- 
tol’s editorial department in Novem- 
ber, 1958. In July, 1964, he was pro- 
moted to classical copy chief, a posi- 
tion he held until his recent merchan- 
dising appointment. 

An accomplished musician, Spon-

Fuhrman Named Liberty's 
West Coast District Mgr. 

LOS ANGELES — Mel Fuhrman, who 
has been associated with Liberty 
Records in the east for the past three 
years, has been transferred to Los 
Angeles to serve as west coast dis- 
trict manager, according to Liberty 
exec vice-president Phil Skaff. Fuhr- 
man takes on his new duties imme- 
diately, headquartering at Liberty’s 
Los Angeles offices, 

Fuhrman entered the record in- 
dustry in 1957 as a salesman for 
Tops Records. During his six years 
with the label, he was promoted to 
eastern sales manager and later to 
the position of national sales man- 
ager. He joined Liberty three years 
ago as assistant branch manager at 
LRDC of New York. A short time 
later, he was upped to eastern dis- 
trict manager. 


Mike Elliot To Head 
Liberty's Tape Sales 

HOLLYWOOD— Mike Elliot has been 
named national sales manager of Lib- 
erty Records recently-formed stereo 
tape dept., according to Lee Mendell, 
general manager. 

Elliot, who leaves his position as 
president of Consolidated Interna- 
tional Record Co. of America, a re- 
leasing firm for indie productions, to 
join Liberty, recently served as a con- 
sultant in preparing a comprehensive 
market analysis of cartridges and 
their potential. His enthusiasm over 
the tape cartridge field runs high, 
maintaining that industry interest in 
the area is comparable to that of the 
introduction of the flat disk. 

He entered the music business in 
1946 as sales-promo director of Musi- 
craft Records. In 1950, he left the 
company to enter personal manage- 
ment, and in 1957 he joined Allied 
Manufacturing Co. as head of Allied 
Record Distribution Co. He estab- 
lished CIRCA five years later, simul- 
taneously taking over the ARDCO op- 
eration. 


TRO Releasing 'Morgan's Song' 

NEW YORK — On the heels of its 
current success with “The Phoenix 
Love Theme,” TRO is releasing the 
score of “Morgan.” The recent debut 
of the Karel Reicz directed British 
flick has heralded a lot of activity at 
the Richmond Organization. TRO is 
girding itself for the impending re- 
lease of the cinema version of “Stop 
The World I Want To Get Off” which 
is scheduled for May. 

TRO is also busy organizing an 
American concert tour for French 
singer-composer, Charles Aznavour. 
The concert repertoire will include a 
lot of brand new material, all of 
which will be published, as is much 
of Aznavour’s current Catalog, 
through TRO. 


Randall Wood To Europe 

HOLLYWOOD — Mira, Mirwood, and 
Surrey labels chief Randall Wood ar- 
rives this week (25) in Paris for his 
first stop in a two week tour of six 
European countries. 

Wood, whose Mirwood label cur- 
rently features a chart single, “Mine 
Exclusively” by The Olympics, will be 
finalizing worldwide licensing agree- 
ments with Philips in Holland, and 
meeting with Gerard Tournier, Mir- 
wood’s sub-publisher in Paris. 

Following Paris, Wood’s itinerary 
includes meetings in Milan, Hamburg, 
Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and London 
to conclude sub-publishing agree- 
ments, and some recording in Italy 
before he returns to the United 
States 

Wood, whose Mira Productions, 
Inc. houses the Mira, Mirwood, and 
Surrey labels, approaches the end of 
his first successful year of operation 
with a number of hit singles, and the 
LP soundtrack for the Academy 
Award nominated short subject 
“Skaterdater,” produced jointly by 
Marshall Backler and Noel Black. 
The score has been published by 
Arima Music, Wood’s SESAC firm. 


Capitol's 'Foam Donut' 

(Continued from page 6) 
shipped safely without fear of dam- 
age. 

Beucler’s “Foam Donut”, however, 
is aimed at solving each of these 
problems: 

1 — Although the cartridge occupies 
only the 4 x 5% front area, the liner 
notes will have the entire seven inch 
back side. 

2 — Instead of the cartridge being 
an “outcast” in the stores, it will now 
fit thousands of existing reel-to-reel 
or pre-recorded tape merchandisers 
and displays already in stores. 

3 The larger containers will 

greatly decrease possible pilferage 
and will also enable the cartridge to 
be shipped safely in existing cartons 
which were designed for the pre- 
recorded 7 inch tapes. 

As for the cost of the “Foam Do- 
nut”, Beucler said it would be “very 
nominal and any cost will be more 
than made up for in the advantages 
it will offer to the tape industry. 

Beucler explained that the “Donuts” 
were not designed to be a permanent 
container for the cartridge. “Its pur- 
pose is two-fold, to supply the manu- 
facturer with a package that can be 
shipped with a maximum of protec- 
tion for the product and to give the 
dealer a tape cartridge that can be 
readily displayed and relatively loss 
free.” 

Beucler pointed out that the car- 
tridge will not only fit all of Capitol’s 
different seven inch pre-recorded tape 
merchandisers, but the label’s seven 
inch browsers for singles as well. 

The cartridge is in plain view in 
the “Donut” cut out, so the consumer 
can see and identify the product he is 
buying. 

The 7" package will be wrapped in 
see-through material. The finished 
product will look the same as the in- 
dustry’s shrink-wrapped LP’s. 



Super Session

recording of the original 
Broadway cast album of 
“It’s A Bird, It’s A

the label’s president,

(left) took advantage of 
a break to talk over the 
project with the por- 
trayer of the super hero, 
Bob Holiday. The LP 
was released last week. 


Joseph Maddy Dies 

NEW YORK— Dr. Joseph E. Maddy, 
long time music business vet and 
founder of the National Music Camp, 
died last week. Stanley Adams, presi- 
dent of ASCAP, made the following 
statement upon learning of Maddy’s 
death: “The death of Dr. Joseph E. 
Maddy is a serious loss to American 
Music. The National Music Camp, a 
summer music school which he 
founded in 1928, was an inspiration 
to our nation’s musically talented 
youngsters, and developed many fine 
musicians. It will continue to be a 
tribute to him through the years.” 


Warner Bros. Gives 
Waronker Nod To A&R 

BURBANK, CAL.— J. K. Maitland, 
president of Warner Bros. Records, 
recently announced the appointment 
of Leonard Waronker to the a&r 
staff of the company. He will audi- 
tion masters, solicit new material for 
artists, and eventually produce for 
each of the Warner Bros, labels. 
Waronker ’s background includes ex- 
perience in the music publishing as 
well as the record producing fields. 


NARAS Meet 

(Continued from page 6) 

Milt Gabler, the Decca A&R exec, 
who maintained that many members 
were qualified to vote in any number 
of categories. He claimed he could 
vote intelligently in about 80% of the 
categories. , , ,, 

Mickey Kapp said that the voting 
procedure’s greatest stumbling block 
was the “unintelligent vote.” 

Categories Discussed 

Since 1958, when the first Grammy 
awards took place, the number of 
categories has grown from 28 to the 
present figure of 47. In an informal 
vote, a show of hands, an overwhelm- 
ing majority of those in attendance 
were in favor of devising awards in 
fewer categories. However, a number 
of problems were cited, including 
proper recognition of various types of 
music and technical achievements, that 
have in the past frustrated NARAS 
Trustees’ attempts to shorten the list 
of categories. At least tw r o sugges- 
tions made at the meeting would add 
categories. These include Jerry V\ ex- 
ler’s desire for “parity” for R&B 
awards, over which Wexler publicly 
chided NARAS a few months ago, 
and recognition for educational re- 
cordings. 


Ember In U.S. 

(Continued from page 6) 
personal assets to form a wholly in- 
tegrated company whereby all the 
projects and their profits will come 
under one umbrella and this to being 
done now. Upon completion, all the 
individual companies will be absorbed 
into Ember Records International 
Ltd., who will also own in its entirety, 
Ember Records International Inc. 
Ember will issue more shares to ac- 
quire all Kruger’s other interests. 

Ember, said to rank sixth in Eng- 
lish disk sales, has strong distribu- 
tion facilities in the United Kingdom 
with 9 major independent distributors 
plus the outlets of the Decca/Selecta 
distributorships, and feels it is well 
enough established now to look around 
for the representation by them of im- 
portant American labels. It is hoped 
that a major signing will be accom- 
plished by the end of the present trip. 

Ember has just completed its first

FROM COVER TO COVER 

THEY'RE IDENTICAL... 



. . . only the wrappers in which the two were mailed were differ- 
ent. The one on the left had a Detroit address. The one on the 
right went to France. The only other difference was postage. 

But once the wrapper is off the contents are identical. 

Our subscribers in Guam, Germany, the Congo and England 
read the exact same Cash Box read in Seattle and Miami. Not 
one word is changed. 

You might look at it this way for a moment. When an ad is 
run in Cash Box and is designed to attract the attention of the 
local disk jockeys and dealers, the same copy is being di- 
gested by the International market .... and at no additional 
cost. And there are some people who say that a smash hit 
single often can sell more internationally than it does domes- 
tically. 

So the next time you have a hot story to tell, tell it in Cash 
Box and tell the world.

The “Great Race” cinema premiere 
turned into a “great pie-fight” for 5 
spinners from WHBQ-Memphis. To 
celebrate the flick’s opening in Mem- 
phis, deejays Wilkerson, Cook, Ed- 
wards, Chapman, and Froland par- 
ticipated in an antique auto race from 
downtown Memphis to the premiere 
theatre. The “Q Country” jocks made 
themselves available as pie targets 
upon their arrival at the theatre. 
Pies were $1 each, with proceeds go- 
ing to a Variety Club charity. 


Mainstream has given additional,, 
impetus to the trivia craze which re- 
cently swept the country and now 
seems to be nestled in our colleges': 
At the mid Apr. convention of the 
Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, 
the diskery fielded its own trivia con- 
test and limited the competition to 
college radio stations. All question^ 
are in some way related to the Main- 
stream catalog and the prizes are! 
subscriptions to future releases by 
that label. 


WDOK-FM-Cleveland has initiated 
a discussion program of particular 
interest to hi-fi/stereo fans. The 
weekly half-hour airing is hosted by 
Oscar Ericsson and is devoted ex- 
clusively to discussions of the new 
developments in the world of high 
fidelity stereo sound reproduction. 
Ericsson, in consideration of the com- 
plexity of many home sound systems, 
will invite the listening audience to 
participate in the program by sending 
in questions about their various audio 
difficulties. 


A flurry of telephone action marked 
the 24 hour featuring of “Mrs. Mil- 
ler’s Greatest Hits” on KHOW-Den- 
ver. The outlet reports that it re- 
ceived over 12,000 comments from its 
listeners during the period. Many of 
these comments were aired and thus 
inspired a wide range discussion of 
music. 


Sigma Delta Chi, the national pro- 
fessional journalism society, has be- 
stowed its top honor for radio report- 
ing to WNEW-New York in response 
to the outlet’s coverage of Novem- 
ber’s potentially devastating power 
failure known as “the blackout.” The 
Sigma Delta Chi announcement said 
that the station had exhibited “the 
highest degree of perception, integri- 
ty, and professional news judgment 
in covering the massive power failure 
in New York and surrounding states, 
in a situation where hysteria could 
have prevailed and where radio was 
the only means of public communica- 
tion.” 


If you’d like to be a monkey’s un 
cle, just contact Barney Keep of : 
KEX-Portland. Barney is giving away 
one monkey each week for six week£ 
to those listeners sending in the best 
entries on “Why I would like to be’ 
a monkey’s uncle.” the monkeys are 
named after KEX air personalities 
and they can be dressed up and 
taught to do tricks just like the out- 
let’s deejays. 


Sputters: WIDG-St. Ignace, Mich. is 
expected to premiere as a 5,000 watt, 
non-directional daytimer on May 1. 

. . . ABC-TV plans to feature Robert 
Goulet in a 90-minute adaptation of 
Lerner and Loewe’s musical, “Briga- 
doon” .... “Music ’Til Dawn” (the 
American Airlines sponsored concert 
music program on KNX-Hollywood) 
has recently celebrated its 13th year 
on the air. ... As of Apr. 11, WKMI- 
FM-Kalamazoo became WSEO-FM. 
The new call letters stand for “stereo 1 
in Kalamazoo.” . . . WMQM-Memphis 
has been operating for 2 years. The 
outlet is programmed for 100% pop 
standards. . . . Air personalities, Ray 
Otis, Howie Lund, Johnny Canton, A 
Gates, and Bobby Magic of WIXY- 
Cleveland will host a review starring 
Sammy Davis, Jr. when the artist 
goes to Cleveland. 


A relatively new concept in station 
identification jingles has been re- 
cently aired by WFBR-Baltimore. 
Called “Electrogenic Sound,” the 
sounds are the creation of Eric Siday, 
who has provided the electronic iden- 
tification for such corporations and 
products as Westinghouse, Ford Mo- 
tor Co., American Express, and Max- 
well House. Siday starts with basic 
tones, which can be electronically 
shaped to give an infinite variety of 
colorations, and works with them un- 
til he attains sounds that he feels are 
capable of instantly creating images 
in the minds of listeners. 



The station representative firm of 
Bernard Howard & Co. which special- 
izes in outlets with a primarily Negro 
listening audience, has urged more 
than 100 leading corporations to com- 
municate enlightened integration poli- 
cies to the Negro community via eth- 
nic media. The firm suggested that 
corporate institutional advertising in 
Negro oriented media be carried out 
in order to effectively build a favor- 
able image for a company in the 
Negro national community. The com- 
pany also noted that this will accom- 
plish employment recruitment specifi- 
cally directed to the Negro as well 
as effective corporate image-building- 
through channels that the Negro al- 
ready trusts.

POP PICKS 


WHAT NOW MY LOVE— Herb Alpert & Tijuana 
Brass— A&M 114 

Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass have added 
another superlative effort to their current crop 
of chart items with this LP titled after, and con- 
taining their currently charted single “What Now 
My Love.” The red hot group adds some other 
top sounds to the single with their inimitable in- 
terpretations of “The Shadow Of Your Smile,” 
“It Was A Very Good Year” and “If I Were A 
Rich Man” among others. Powerful chart item 
here. 



ON TOUR— Sam the Sham & Pharaohs— MGM 
E/SE 4347 

Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs rocketed to fame^ 
with their “Wooly Bully” smash and followed up 
immediately with several other wallopers, in- 
cluding “Ring Dang Doo” and “Red Hot,” both 
of which are featured in this LP. Specializing in 
a contagious, driving rhythm, the group should' 
attract hordes of its fans as a result of this , 
powerful, dance-oriented disk. Some of the other 
grooves include “Big City Lights” and “Uncle 
Willie.” • 


POP BEST BETS 


THE SHADOW OF YOUR SMILE— Andy Wil- 
liams — Columbia CL 2499/CS 9299 

The radiant tones of Andy Williams make this 
latest of his Columbia offerings a wonderfully 
pleasing listening experience. Williams caresses 
such standards as “Bye Bye Blues” and “Peg O’ 
My Heart” and does an equally sweet job on 
recent tunes the likes of “Yesterday” and “Mi- 
chelle.” And Williams’ provoking reading of the 
Academy Award winning title tune tells why both 
it and Williams are winners. 


THE GENTRYS 



GENTRY TIME— Gentrys— MGM E/SE 4346 
The Gentrys, who hit big a while back with 
combination of the English sound plus the Mem- 
phis sound, still feature that same hitmaking 
sound in this MGM album. A pulsing, infectious 
beat permeates the deck, with such top-flight 
workouts as “I’m Gonna Look Straight Through* 
You” and “Ramblin’ Man” making this appealing 
for the teen set. Could be a big over-the-counter * 
item. 


GETZ/GILBERTO #2 — Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto 
—Verve V/V6-8623 

Two of the foremost names among the ex- 
ponents of bossa nova, Stan Getz and Joao Gil- 
berto took America by storm a while back with 
the import of the Brazilian pop music into the 
U.S. After zooming up the charts in his duet 
outing with Astrud Gilberto, Getz has come back 
with her husband Joao in another exciting bossa 
nova workout. Good action can be expected on the 
set, which features such tracks as “Stan’s Blues” 
and “Samba De Minha Terra.” 


THE YOUNG RASCALS— Atlantic S/SD 8123 
Currently zooming up the singles charts with 
their smash recording of “Good Lovin’,” the 
Young Rascals can look forward to an excellent 
consumer response to this wild LP effort, high- 
lighted by that same track. Jamming the grooves 
with rock and folk-rock material, the foursome 
lets loose with a supercharged, frenetic sound 
that should keep the dancers on their feet and 
the buyers at the counters. Some of the other 
tracks in the set include “Slow Down” and “Like 
A Rolling Stone.”

Hn Robert Dt Cormier Singers 



IT’S MAGIC — Barbara Lewis — Atlantic S/SD 
8118 * 
Barbara Lewis, who recently carved a niche 
in the pop charts with her winning single entry,'. 
“It’s Magic,” has lost no time in following up that I 
hit with this album by the same name. Heartfelt - 
at times, and misty at others, the lark lets loose 
with a potent selection of goodies, including “The 
Shadow Of Your Smile” and “Yesterday,” as well 
as the title track. Artist can look forward to nice 
reaction. 


THE FOLK ALBUM — Robert DeCormier Singers. 
— Command RS 897 SD > 

The Robert DeCormier Singers have come up- 
with a fine collection of folk ballads that should 
please a large amount of followers of the folk 
idiom. Long time favorites and modern protest- 
type items highlight the package, which com- 

f (rises a topnotch addition to the Command stereo 
ibrary. Full-voiced, feelingful interpretations 
have been set to such grooves as “Lonesome 
Traveler” and “500 Miles,” among others. 


FOR LOVERS Oh ALL AGES— Ferrante & 
Teicher — United Artists UAL 3483/UAS 6483 
Ferrante & Teicher should continue to set lovely 
moods for their many fans with this set that 
packs a dozen of the finest romance sounds to be 
found. The piano playing pair weave their special 
magic around such melodies as “Ebb Tide,” 
“Theme From A Summer Place” and “What Now 
My Love.” Set should be a prime item for living 
room spinning during the late hours. 


ONE OF THOSE SONGS— The Ray Charles 
Singers — Command RS 8998SI) 

The wonderfully entrancing sound of the Ray 
Charles Singers marks this LP as a prime listen- 
ing item for music fans of all ages and most 
persuasions. The set is titled after the group’s 
latest single “One Of Those Songs” and also 
contains “The Shadow Of Your Smile” and 
“Dream Along With Me” among others. Easy to 
enjoy disk should be a prime Command sales item. 


THEMES FOR SECRET AGENTS— Roland Shaw 
Orchestra — London SP 44076 

With secret agents and spy thrillers still run- 
ning outlandishly effective in the box-office draw 
department, Roland Shaw and his orchestra have 
packaged a high-tension assortment of musical 
cloak-and-dagger goodies, which should score very 
well with the fans of this idiom. Enhanced by the 
vivid London Phase 4 Stereo process, the album 
is a potent piece of listening material and should 
pull in lots of coin. Highlighting the set are such 
tracks as “I Spy” and “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” 
among others.

NEW ROUTE — George Maharis — Epic LN 24191/ 
BN 26191 

Screen and TV star George Maharis, who isr 
gaining a larger and larger following as a record- 
ing artist, should build up his audience even more 
with this highly entertaining disk, recorded ‘live’ 
during his cafe debut at the Persian Room of the 
Plaza Hotel. Maharis packs the LP with a long 
list of favorites, both newies and sturdies, with 
an easy, winning vocal style. Among some of top 
tracks on the set are “Witchcraft” and “It’s Not 
Unusual.” • 


SONGS FOR OUR FIGHTING MEN— Teresa 
Brewer— Philips PHM 200-200/PHS 600-200 
Lovely lark Teresa Brewer has a collection of 
songs that have been sung when men were off at 
war, on this moving package. From “When 
Johnny Comes Marching Home” which has ita 
roots deep in Ireland, to “The Ballad Of The 
Green Berets” which is as current as tomorrow’s 
headlines, the lark movingly tells the story of 
the joy, sorrow, life and death arising out of 
situations of international conflict. 


OVER THE RAINBOW— Patti LaBelle & thd 
Bluebelles — Atlantic SD 8119 

This popular young quartet which features the 
soulful, emotion-filled vocal of Patti LaBell^ 
should find a ready market among the teens. The 
group belts out such tunes as the classic title 
number, a lovely “Unchained Melody” and s 
powerhouse of an “Ebb Tide,” all of which art 
letter perfect for the girls’ many fans. Watch for 
quick and steady sales response. 1

THE FLAMINGOS/THEIR HITS THEN AND 
NOW— Philips PH. VI 200-206/PHS 600-206 

This latest offering by the Flamingos is in no 
one particular mood or tempo. It is all up to date, 
danceable music built on a firm r&b foundation. 
“I Only Have Eyes For You” and the more recent 
“Boogaloo Party” are 2 of their singles on this 
release which is also highlighted by “The Yellow 
Rose Of Texas” and “Brooklyn Boogaloo.” The set 
should move into prominence quickly. 


THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST. MATTHEW 
— Original Motion Picture Score — Mainstream 
54000/S 4000 

One of the latest films dealing with the life 
of Christ, Pier Paolo Pasolini’s “The Gospel 
According To St. Matthew” has received a high 
degree of acclaim from the critics and should 
score well in this original motion picture score 
LP. Featuring several classical pieces (e.g. Bach’s 
“St. Matthew Passion” and Prokofiev’s “Alex- 
ander Nevsky) the album should attract movie- 
goers and classical fans alike. 


GOD’S HAND IN MINE— Slim Whitman— Im- 
perial LP 9308/12308 

After a long hiatus from the country charts, 
Slim Whitman has bounced back on the scene in 
strong fashion (he’s currently clicking with 
“Twelfth Of Never”) and should' do healthy sales 
among C&W lovers with this collection of gospel 
items. The super-sweet Whitman vocalizing, set 
to a dozen joy-filled religious tunes, makes for a 
very appealing recipe. Among the tracks are such 
titles as “A Miracle Of Love” and “How Great 
Thou Art,” in addition to the title track. 


MY GENERATION — Who — Decca DL 4664/74664 
After smashing through on the British charts 
with their latest workout, “My Generation,” the 
Who may break big among American album 
buyers with this followup LP. Cramming this 
debut Decca LP with many tunes penned by lead 
guitarist Pete Townshend, the group rocks 
throughout the platter with a frenetic beat that’s 
just right for dance floor enthusiasts. In addition 
to the title groove, the set is highlighted by 
tracks like “Out In The Street” and “Please 
Please Please.” 


I SPY/MUSIC FROM THE TV SERIES— Warner 
Bros. 1637 

The quick moving excitement of this popular 
TV series is brought to sound on this powerful 
LP with tunes composed and conducted by Earle 
Hagen. From the potent title theme on through 
such exotically dubbed ditties as “Rickshaw Ride,” 
“Away We Go To Mexico” and “Fiesta Del Sol” 
the set should give loads of listening pleasure to 
the average music lover and should provide a 
special thrill for fans of the show. 


AS LONG AS THE WIND BLOWS— Johnny 
Darrell— United Artists UAL 3490/UAS 6490 
Country songster Johnny Darrell, who recently 
decorated the charts with his “As Long As The 
Wind Blows” winner, should score equally well 
in the album department with this LP titled after 
that single. A warm country-folk flavor highlights 
the session as Darrell sings and plucks through a 
bevy of country goodies, including his past hit, 
“Green, Green Grass Of Home,” and his latest 
outing, “Johnny Lose It All.” 


THE MAN CALLED SHENANDOAH— Robert 
Horton — Columbia CL 2408/CS 9208 

Robert Horton, who stars and plays the title 
role in the TV series “The Man Called Shenan- 
doah,” has cut this LP which leads off with the 
folk classic “Shenandoah” which the actor/singer 
does on the weekly stanza. The balance of the set 
is a group of country and/or western oriented 
tunes which range from the best selling “King 
Of The Road” to the now standard “They Call 
The Wind Maria” from “Paint Your Wagon.” 


The Nov

THE NEW CLASSIC SINGERS— Capitol T/

On this set, the New Classic Singers sing not 
words but easy flowing one-syllable sounds that 
emphasize and enhance the melody. This package, 
which contains such songs as “A Lover’s Con- 
certo,” was produced, arranged, and conducted by 
Hank Levine. Two other blue ribbon tracks are 
“Sukiyaki” and “Bye Bye Blues.” A fine item for 
listening pleasure.

Coleman on alto sax, violin and trumpet, being 
backed by David Izenzon on bass and Charles 
Moffett on drums the sound is pure improvisation. 
Third stream jazz may be the closest classifying 
adjective, but it is certainly not prohibitive.

PAT BOWIE — FEELIN’ GOOD — Prestige 
PR7437 

Featuring Pat Bowie’s voice with Charles Mc- 
Pherson’s alto sax, Tommy Flanagan’s piano, A1 
Hall’s bass, and Osie Johnson’s drums, this pack- 
age is a swinger. It is an offering of real jazz 
with the late night, after hours jam session 
feeling. This is a strong set that should attract 
the attention of the jazzophile. Some of the 
outstanding tracks are “Wonder Why,” “They 
Can’t Take That Away From Me,” and the title 
song. 


RAMBLIN’ — The Jack Wilson Quartet — Vault 
9002 

This collection of top jazz pieces is all done up 
in the flowing solid sound of the Jack Wilson 
Quartet, which features, in addition to the leader 
on piano, Roy Ayers on vibes, Monk Montgomery 
on bass and Varner Barlow on drums. Such tracks 
as Ornette Coleman’s “Ramblin’ ” and John Col- 
trane’s “Impressions” give the group plenty of 
sounds with which to show off their profession- 
ally, something they do in fine style. Set is good 
listening.

THE GREAT SYMPHONIES OF DVORAK — 
Cleveland Orchestra/Szell — Epic BSC 155 

Devotees of the music of Dvorak or of that of 
the Cleveland Orchestra under the baton of 
George Szell, should be delighted by this three 
disk offering which contains Dvorak’s “Symphony 
No. 7 in D Minor,” “Symphony No. 8 in G Major” 
and “Symphony No. 9 in E Minor.” The three 
pieces are truly the great symphonies of this 
outstanding composer and the Cleveland does 
them justice in this set. A superb addition to any 
collection 



MOZART/SERENADE NO. 9 IN D MAJOR/ 
SYMPHONY NO. 28 IN C MAJOR— Cincinnati 
Symphony/Rudolf — Decca DL 710129 

These two selections from the works of Mozart 
are given masterful interpretations by the Cincin- 
nati Symphony Orchestra under the strong direc- 
tion of Max Rudolf. The “Serenade No. 9” 
(Posthorn) is a wonderfully varied piece and the 
“Symphony No. 28,” written in 1773, reflects the 
composer’s youth and brightness. The matching 
makes for a highly listenable and enjoyable disk.

UA: 5 New Sets, 

3 Soundtracks 

NEW YORK — United Artists’ LP re- 
lease for May, which totals five sets, 
includes three movie soundtracks. 

The package is headed by Patty 
Duke’s second LP titled “Patty” which 
combines both standards and new 
tunes, Garnet Mimms' “I’ll Take Good 
Care Of You” and the three flick 
items are from “Khartoum” with mu-

SESAC Ups Sales of 
LP's In First Quarter 

NEW YORK— Gross sales of SESAC 
Recordings LP’s to broadcast facilities 
in the United States and abroad dur- 
ing the rst quarter indicate that 1966 
will prove to be one of the most suc- 
cessful sales years in the firm’s 35- 
year history, the licensing organiza- 
tion reported last week. Shipments to 
foreign markets alone during the first 
three months have shown a marked 
increase over the same period in pre- 
vious years and the same holds true 
on a national level. 

Last year was a record sales year 
for SESAC with the introduction of 
its “95 Series.” The first quarter of 
1966, however, highlighted by an in- 
dustry-wide mailing on the series and 
the recent National Association of 
Broadcasters convention in Chicago 
where, as various trade sources have 
reported, station owners were in a 
buying mood, indicates that by year- 
end, an all-time high sales record will 
be reached. 

According to Sid Guber, SESAC’s 
national sales manager, “We are ex- 
tremely confident that before the year 
ends, we will have SESAC Recordings 
in practically every station in the 
country. Our ‘Drummers’ series of 
musical sales and programming aids 
is already in use at more than 1,000 
stations and in 1966 we hope to fill in 
the few areas of the country still 
open for this ‘market exclusive’ series. 
We are always delighted to receive 
orders for SESAC Recordings and 
‘Drummers’ from stations not hereto- 
fore subscribing, but are particularly 
encouraged to receive so many repeat 
orders from our regular subscribers. 
We are obviously filling a need and 
will continue in that direction in the 
months ahead.” 




Quincy Jones Inked 
To Score Tobruk' 

NEW YORK — Composer Quincy 
Jones, who is currently completing 
the soundtrack for “Walk, Don’t 
Run,” has just signed to compose the 
score for Universal’s film, “Tobruk,” 
a Gene Corman production directed by 
Arthur Hiller. 

The multi-million dollar technicolor 
production, filmed in the deserts of El 
Centro, California, marks Mr. Jones’ 
first composing assignment for a war 
film, and he expects it to be an excit- 
ing, creative challenge. 

The movie, based on a true experi- 
ence in World War II, will star Rock 
Hudson, George Peppard, Nigel Green 
and Guy Stockwell. It is set for release 
early in 1967.

GREATEST SOUND IN MUSIC: 



'Louie, Louie' Returns Again 

NEW YORK — The Kingsmen’s record 
of “Louie, Louie,” which was initially 
released some two and a half years 
ago, has once again become a hot item 
in the singles sales market. 

The current sales boom has account- 
ed for the sale of 97,000 pieces of the 
deck according to the label’s Peter 
Garris, who also stated that between 
seven and eight months ago the single 
went through a phase where it sold 
an additional 300,000 copies. The cur- 
rent boom in the single has placed it 
on the Top 100 chart at 89 with a red 
bullet last week and this week has 
moved it to number 85. 

The tune has never wained in its 
appeal according to the sales figures 
on the Kingsmen’s “Louie, Louie” LP, 
released by the label. Monthly sales 
are in the 80,000 to 100,000 range. 

Garris also said that stations 
throughout the country are once 
again regularly playing the tune. 


Audio Fidelity Enters 
Country Music Field 

NEW YORK — Herman D. Gimbel, 
president of Audio Fidelity Records, 
anounced last week that the company 
will enter the country field under the 
newly-acquired label, Little Darlin’ 
Records. 

AF has brought in Aubrey Mayhew, 
who is being retained to supervise the 
C&W markets under the Little Darlin’ 
heading. L/D is being revamped and 
made ready for an all out release 
schedule. 

Johnny Paycheck and Country 
Johnny Mathis are the two artists 
that will launch Little Darlin’ under 
its new affiliation. Both artists will 
have immediate releases. The label 
plans an all out promotion campaign 
concentrated on both songsters. 


Ed McMahon Hosts 
Bedside Network Ball 

NEW YORK— Ed McMahon of the 
Johnny Carson TV’er was host for 
the entertainment program of the 
18th Anniversary dinner dance of the 
Bedside Network of Veterans Hospital 
Radio and Television guild which was 
held Friday (29) at the Waldorf As- 
toria. Mrs. Oscar Hammerstein II, 
Dorothy Fields, and Gwen Verdon co- 
chairmaned the affair, the proceeds 
from which will be used to further the 
activities of the Bedside Network. 

Herbert A. Granath, president of 
the Bedside Network, said that the 
Vietnam war with its escalating cas- 
ualty lists has served “to heighten the 
need for the recreational services” 
provided by the volunteer group. 



IN MEMORIAM — Capitol’s vice presi- 
dent of artists and repertoire Voyle 
j Gilmore recently presented Califor- 
nia’s Governor Edmund Brown with 
a special souvenir of the label’s re- 
cently released soundtrack LP of 
“Years Of Lightning, Day Of Drums” 
film. The movie opened to rave re- 
j views in New York earlier this month. 


'Clear Day' Disk Coverage 
Is Wide, Flick Rights Due 

NEW YORK — One of this season’s 
most active show scores on the disk 
scene is “On A Clear Day You Can 
See Forever.” 

More than 35 singles have been cut 
from the Burton Lane-Alan Jay Ler- 
ner musical, with about an equal num- 
ber of albums exposing material from 
the production. 

The show, which recently passed the 
200 performance mark at the Mark 
Hellinger in New York, may come to 
the movies under the Paramount ban- 
ner. Composer Lane said last week 
that the film company made a “ very 
substantial offer.” No deal, however, 
has been firmed. 

The “Clear Day” score recently won 
a Grammy as the best score of the 
year, as heard on an RCA Victor ori- 
ginal cast LP. 


NightClubs: 

Damone Has Newer 
Singing Dimensions 

NEW YORK — Vic Damone remains 
a big-voiced singer, but the years have 
given him added dimensions of hip- 
ness and subtlety. These wide rang- 
ing skills are currently being dis- 
played by the veteran songster at the 
posh Persian Room in the Hotel Plaza 
in New York. 

Picking material that scans the 
years of fine pop music output, he 
croons them, swings them and probes 
them. There’s an intense rendition of 
this year’s Academy Award Winning 
song, “The Shadow Of Your Smile,” 
a rhythmic “The Best Is Yet To Come” 
and a searching Bossa Nova medley, 
including the lovely “Quiet Nights.” 
Latter stint involves the sensitive 
services of guitarist Sam Brown. The 
familiar Damone approach, that of 
the big voice, is effective on “Just Say 
I Love Her,” “More” and “Who Can I 
Turn To.” 

The artist was recently signed to 
RCA Victor Records, which started 
a series of recording sessions last 
week that will soon lead to Damone’s 
new dates on the label. 


'Leaning On Lamp Posf-': 
New Hit With An Old Past 

NEW YORK — “Leaning On The 
Lamp Post,” the current Herman’s 
Hermits MGM Top 100 smash, has a 
thoroughly surprising history, accord- 
ing to Richard L. Rosenthal, president 
of Mills Music, the tune’s publisher. 

The most current chapter of that 
history is fairly well known: the 
single is a break-out from the group’s 
original motion picture soundtrack al- 
bum “Hold On!” — also a chart-topper. 
Interestingly enough, the flick has not 
been released yet (MGM has sched- 
uled the film for national release this 
month). 

The song is not, however, a new 
piece of material. A 1937 copyright, 
the tune w'as introduced at that time, 
coincidentally, in another flick, 
“Feather Your Nest,” starring George 
Formby. (“Leaning On The Lamp 
Post” was written by the late Noel 
Gray, who also wrote: “There’s Some- 
thing About A Soldier,” “Lambeth 
Walk,” “Run, Rabbit Run,” and “The 
Windsor Melody,” among others.) 

After its 1937 introduction the tune 
was often heard in English music 
halls and it has been recorded on some 
English labels. 

Herman’s Hermits have been per- 
forming the number in their own very 
special way as part of their live act 
for some time now.

Nitery Review: 

Pet Clark Glows At 
Cocoanut Grove Debut 

LOS ANGELES — Standing on stilts 
and soaked with cement Petula Clark 
couldn’t reach “Boots” Sinatra’s belt 
buckle or outweigh Willie Pep at, 
would you believe, age eight. So per- 
haps an imposter was presented here 
at the Grove last week. Whoever — 
it was a delight to share a warm hour 
with this charming Wilt Chamberlain 
heavyweight of versatility and to bask 
in the brilliance of her L.A. debut. 

That demi tasse filly out of Epsen, 
England is a revelation. If you’re ex- 
pecting the usual British reserve then 
don’t look under the sheltering palms 
along Wilshire. The only reserve will 
be for tables at the Grove during the 
next two weeks. 

Pet is a shoulder shaking, hip twist- 
ing and vocally pulsating fingerling 
female. A whirling dervish with a 
wealth of artistic wisdom. Not sui-- 
prising when one considers that she 
has been singing for twenty-eight 
years. They’ve been well spent. 

Most of her repertoire is rhythmic 
but that doesn’t mean she can’t war- 
ble a ballad. She can be as breathless 
as that willow in a windstorm or as 
rasping as a Pee Wee Russell solo. 
And, when the song calls for it, she 


West Coast Tour Set

Cleveland Orchestra, heard exclusive-

clude a number of performances at 
various universities, marks the Cleve- 
land Orchestra’s 2nd West Coast visit. 
The 28 performance tour will last

Szell will share the directorial spot

has the soul of Wilson Pickett and 
the sweet hammer style of Percy 
Sledge. 

Along with her top ten bag of tuck 
she offers a palpitating medley from 
“My Fair Lady,” a tribute to Edith 
Piaf with “La Vie En Rose,” sincere 
ballad treatments of the vintage “For 
All We Know,” the Beatles’ “I Wanna 
Hold Y r our Hand” and her own com- 
position “Two Rivers.” She also goes 
Gaulic with “Hello Dolly! ,” “I Know 
A Place,” “Downtown” and “Made- 
moiselle De Paris.” And updates Irv-

with additional lyrics by Alan Sher-

is,” she explains. “He’s the fat little 
man who had such a hit with a song 
called “Downtown”— long before Mrs. 
Miller got hold of it.” 

The list of celebrated guests who 
attended her opening could go well 
into the next column. A tribute to the 
artist since the event took place just 
one eve after the Academy awards. 

A few months back the folks at 
Warners got carried away one after- 
noon and issued a Pet Clark album 
which was subtitled “The World’s 
Greatest Singer.” At this moment we 
won’t dispute the allegation. 

That Dresden doll may be wrapped 
in diminutive bunting but in these 
days of large economy packages it’s 
refreshing to find a tiny turbulent 
damsel with such a clear, bright and 
versatile voice box. But more and 
more it’s a compact transistorized 
world. Could be a sign of the times.

Global 'West Side' 


Sales At 5 Mil. 


NEW YORK — Columbia Records has 
added up the combined world-wide 
sales total of the “West Side Story” 
Broadway cast and soundtrack LP’s 
and the figure is 5 million copies sold. 
Both versions of the historic musical 
have long since been given gold rec- 
ord awards by the RIAA for sales 
reaching $1 million. 

Interesting enough, the writers of 
the score, Leonard Bernstein (music) 
and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics), have 
yet to team up again on a show score. 
“West Side,” which bowed in 1958, is 
Bernstein’s last score for Broadway. 


| Since “West Side,” Sondheim has 
penned lyrics for “Gypsy,” “A Funny 
Thing . . .” (music, too), “Anyone Can 
Whistle” (music, too) and “Do I Hear 
A Waltz?” 

“West Side” has been phenominally 
successful since its debut and has 
been produced in Denmark, Sweden, 
Norway, France, England, Israel, 
Japan, the Philippines, Australia, 
Puerto Rico, and Canada as w r ell as 
the U.S. Plans are currently underway 
to produce “West Side Story” for a 
summer festival to be held in Mexico 
later this year. 


Lt. Gober: ABC-Par's 
Talent Vet From Vietnam 

NEW YORK — The ABC-Paramount 
label’s singing-writing vet of Viet- 
nam is Lt. Hershel Gober. The officer, 
serving as an advisor to Vietnamese 
militia forces in the delta, wrote and 
taped his first single, “Proud Ameri- 
can” and “I Need You So,” in the field, 
where he came to the attention of 
ABC-TV newsmen who brought the 
material to the diskery. 

A 10 year veteran of the armed 
service, Lt. Gober joined the Marines 
in 1956 and the U. S. Army in 1961. 
He spent three years in Germany and 
then requested a transfer to Vietnam, 
arriving there last Dec. He hails from 
Dermott, Ark., where his wife and 
four sons live.

(evidenced by NBC’s Roger Miller 
Show due this fall), Dick Clarke has 
become involved in the production of 
a country style color TV’er tentatively 
set for 5 national airings weekly. 

The show is primarily musical-va- 
riety in nature and it will feature 
audience participation utilizing the 
usual stage format. The program will 
regularly feature a commedian and 
Rusty Draper is set to host. Molly Bee 
and Roy Clark will be steady attrac- 
tions. 


Ike & Tina To Phil les 

i NEW YORK — A headline in last 
week’s story involving a Philles disk 
pact for Ike & Tina Turner incorrectly 
stated the pair’s new affiliation as 
being with the Philips label. The 
team’s first single, “River Deep-Moun- 
tain High,” was rushed to distribs 
last week. 



INSTALLATION — The Music and Performing Arts Lodge of the B’nai B’rith 
recently held elections, followed by an installation dinner where this photo 
was snapped of some of the successful candidates. A1 Bermen (not in the 
photo) was elected president and (left to right) Ira Moss, Herb Goldfarb, 
George Gabriel, New York deputy comptroller Eugene L. Sugarman, Lou 
Merenstein and Si Mael (Sugarman excluded) were elected to vice presidencies. 


‘More’ Hits 200 Mark 


NEW YORK— The Edward B. Marks 
Music Corporation has chalked up its 
200th recording of the all-time hit 
film song, “More.” The song, which 
celebrates its third birthday this 
month, made its initial appearance as 
the theme of the Italian documentary 
film “Mondo Cane” in 1963 and has 
continued its strong pace through 
thhe middlle of 1966. 

Among the 200 recordings issued 
thus far are decks by such outstanding 


artists as: Andy Williams, Judy Gar- 
land, Brenda Lee, the TJB, Connie 
Francis, Sinatra-Basie, Steve Law- 
rence, Nancy Wilson, Caterina Valente 
and Gene Pitney. 

Acknowledged by BMI as one of 
their all-time greatest money-makers; 
there are more than 56 different rec- 
ord companies who have used the song 
with as many as 15 different artists 
on one label.

OVER THE HILL (2:21) [Starday, BMI— Bond] 

FIREBALL (3:10) [Tarheel, BMI— Glenn] 

JOHNNY BOND (Starday 758) 

Johnny Bond may very well have another “Ten Little Bottles” on his 
hands with this brand new item titled “Over The Hill.” A light, waltz- 
tempo, humor-spiced side, this one could attract many a deejay. 
“Fireball” is a fast-paced adventurous saga of a race car driver. 


TIME TO BUM AGAIN (2:00) [Bramble, BMI— Howard] 
NORWEGIAN WOOD (2:00) [Maclen, BMI — Lennon, McCartney] 
WAYLON JENNINGS (RCA Victor 8822) 


(Yes) I’M HURTING (2:16) [Acuff-Rose, BMI— Gibson] 

MY WHOLE WORLD IS HURT (2:24) [Acuff-Rose, BMI— Gibson] 
DON GIBSON (RCA Victor 8812) 

Hot on the heels of his recent charter, “Born Loser,” Don Gibson 
reaches into his bag of self-penned goodies and comes up with another 
sure-fire, chartbound deck. Top side, “(Yes) I’m Hurting,” is a loping, 
blues-oriented mover, done up in Gibson’s usual highly appealing style. 
Flip, “My Whole World Is Hurt,” is a slowed down, tear-drenched shuf- 
fler. 


BECAUSE IT’S YOU (2:23) [Freeway, BMI— Stoval, George] 
LONG AS I HAVE YOU (2:19) [Blackjack, BMI— Wayne] 
WANDA JACKSON (Capitol 5645) 

After clicking, chart-wise, with her recent “The Box It Came In,” 
Wanda Jackson should score well among country fans with this top- 
notch vocal tabbed “Because It’s You.” Tune is a warmhearted, love- 
filled stanza about a gal who’ll follow her man, right or wrong. “Long 
As I Have You” is a thunkin’, perky bouncer. 


BOTTOMLAND (2:38) [Richwill, BMI — Holmes, Jones] 

THE FIRST STEP DOWN (2:49) [Red Seal, BMI— Pennington] 
TEX WILLIAMS (Boone 1040) 

Not far behind his recent moneymaker, “Bottom Of A Mountain,” 
Tex Williams seems sure to come out on top once again with this effort 
called “Bottomland.” Side is a raunchy, low-key, folk-flavored galloper 
about a man who dreams of owning a decent piece of farmland. “The 
First Step Down” is a slow-moving, melancholy soul-searcher. 

IIlI»IIfllllll!l!!ll!!l!l!llllllllll!lllllllllll!lllll 


Just coming off his recent smash, “Anita You’re Dreaming,” Waylon 
Jennings is shooting for three in a row with this powerful newie dubbed 
“Time To Bum again.” Lid is a sweet-sounding, rhythmic ballad of a 
man with a bad case of itchy feet. Flip is a haunting reading of the 
Beatles’ “Norwegian Wood.” 


TROUBLE’S BACK IN TOWN (2:05) [Surefire, BMI— Flood] 
DON’T SWEETHEART ME (1:56) [Advanced, ASCAP— Friend, Tobias] 
DICK FLOOD (Kapp 754) 


Long absent from the country charts, Dick Flood may well have him- 
self another winner with this updating of the years-back Wilburn 
Brothers biggie, “Trouble’s Back In Town.” With the new treatment, the 
deck, penned by Flood, should attract lots of buyers. “Don’t Sweetheart 
Me” is catchy, “peanut butter”-beat stomper. 

IIIIIIililillllM 


JAMES O’GWYNN (Hickory 1386) 

(B+) BUBBLING OVER (1:47) 
[Ralston, BMI — Garrison] 
James O’Gwynn stands an excellent 
chance to pull in heaps of coin with 
this hard-moving, hand-clapping 
stomper of a guy who’s flipped for a 
certain gal. Deserves a chance. 

(B+) ONE DRINK IS TOO MANY 
(2:29) [Acuff-Rose, BMI — 
Louvin, Young] Undercut is a barrel- 
house blueser of a man trying to 
drown his sorrows. 


JOANIE HALL (Sand 397) 

(B-f) JIMMY LOVES JEANIE BEE 
(2:10) [Sage & Sand, SESAC 
— Beck, Deal] Joanie Hall may well 
break into the big picture with this 
pulsing, warmhearted romancer about 
a couple pledging undying love. 

(B-f) NO CONCERN OF MINE 
(2:10) [Sage & Sand, SESAC 
— Deal, Beck, Deal] Flip is a lowdown, 
heartfelt blueser, equally well done.

ROUND UP 


Minirn , li an 

The country and western package 
headed by Sonny James and the 
Southern Gentlemen has broken all 
records for attendance in Freeport, 
111., according to promoter Dan Hab- 
acher. The package on April 2 starred 
Sonny, Del Reeves and Band, Dottie 
West and Merle Kilgore. Habacher 
said, “We have used all of the top 
attractions of Country Music over the 
past three years in Freeport, and this 
show produced the biggest crowds and 
most enthusiastic audiences to date.” 

Habacher’s bookings are arranged 
by Larry Moeller of Moeller Talent. 
Sonny and the Southern Gentlemen 
are booked by the Bob Neal Agency, 
Inc. of Nashville. 

Music City’s Monument Records has 
launched a massive promotional con- 
test on behalf of “The Old French 
Quarter,” the first C&W single by 
Billy Walker on the Monument label. 
Walker recently switched to Monu- 
ment after a 15-year association with 
Columbia. In a memo to all dis-

dent of the corporation, explained that 
the individual moving the most copies 
of “The Old French Quarter” will be 
rewarded with an all expense paid 
trip for two to New Orleans via Nash- 
ville. The winner and his wife will 
spend the first day in Nashville tour- 
ing the sponsoring record company, 
Foster Studios and Music City, and 
will then be flown to New Orleans for 
the weekend. The trip to New Orleans 
will be accompanied by Walker and 
Chellman. While in the Louisiana city, 
the winning party will stay in the 
heart of the famous French Quarter 
at the new Downtowner Motel and 
will be feted by town officials. High- 
light of the stay will be the presenta- 
tion of a key to the city by the Mayor 
of New Orleans. Competition in the 
promotion is currently undei’way and 
will terminate May 15. 

A sizable portion of Music City’s 
entertaining populace will leave for 
Louisville, Ky. the first week in May 
to perform in the Annual Philip Mor-

Show on May 4 at the city’s Fair-

Show,” is one of the largest shows of 
its type to be produced in the United 
States. The Philip Morris Company 
began sponsoring the show nine years 
ago and it has run consecutively ever 
since to a capacity crowd averaging 
22,000 in number. Nashville booking 
agency chief, W. E. “Lucky” Moeller 
has handled arrangements for the 
extravaganza since its inception. 

Entertainers set to perform this 
year are Marty Robbins and his show, 
Little Jimmy Dickens, Don Gibson, 
Kitty Wells, Johnny Wright and the 
Tenn. Mountain Boys, Bill Phillips, 
Ruby Wright and the Harden Trio. 


manent home-base for his career in 
Country Music. Jennings also per- 
suaded his band, “The Waylors,” to 
relocate with him from their home- 
base of Phoenix. 

Immediately upon his move to Music 
City, the Victor artist began fulfilling 
engagements arranged by his booking 
agent W. E. Moeller. 

His second day in Nashville, he 
filmed guest-artist segments in “The 
Road To Nashville,” a movie being 
made locally about the Country Music 
business, and for the next two months 
he faces an almost solid series of per- 
sonal engagements which have been 



WAYLON JENNINGS SONNY 

The latter act, consisting of Bobby, 
Robbie and Arlene Harden, has been 
hand-picked by the Tobacco company’s 
executives to represent Nashville and 
Music City as an advance unit to per- 
form Public Relations functions for 
the show. Little Johnny Philip Mor- 
ris, celebrated living trade-mark of 
the company, will be the show’s host 
and moderator. 

Tentative plans for a new Nashville- 
based movie were announced today by 
Vic Lewis, vice-president and general 
manager of Marathon Pictures. To be 
entitled “The Ghost of Tin Pan Val- 
ley,” the movie will be full-length and 
in color, and will feature Billy Walker 
in a lead role supplemented by numer- 
ous other Grand Ole Opry enter- 
tainers. The cast will begin filming in 
and around Nashville within six 
months, and a turn of the century 
setting will be utilized. 

RCA Victor recording artist Waylon 
Jennings, moved to Nashville this 
week in order to establish a per-

Speaking of movies, another coun- 
try-oriented flick is now in the mak- 
ing. The film, “The Buck Owens 
Story,” will be shot on location and in 
Hollywood, and will star, naturally, 
Buck Owens. 

Out at the Arena in Steubenville, 
Ohio the crowd went wild for a pack- 
age that was staged on Apr. 24, with 
such names as Don Gibson, Johnny 
Dollar, Hugh X. Lewis, Bill Carlisle, 
Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper and 
Shirley Mae & the Mae Boys. 

After an absence of nearly two 
years, Kathy Dee has returned to the 
country recording scene. Her new con- 
tract is with the West Coast-based 
Progressive Sounds of America, and, 
according to label personnel Zane 
Ashton and John Saunders, her first 
session will be set for Nashville the 
second week in June.

Cash Box — April 30, 1966 International Section 



At a reception at Browns Hotel, Music for Pleasure announced the 
release of “The Voice Of Richard Dimbleby,” a special commemorative 
L.P. comprising excerpts of some of the late Dimbleby’s most famous 
broadcasts i.e. Princess Margaret’s Wedding, The Spanish Civil War, 
Belsen, The Coronation, The Kennedy Funeral, The Churchill Funeral etc. 
The record spans a period of some 30 years during which Dimbleby 
became a household name not only in Britain but overseas and was 
associated with all Royal and important occasions. All proceeds of the 
record, which was produced in conjunction with the B.B.C., are to be 
donated to The Richard Dimbleby Cancer Fund. Coincidental with the 
release BBC Publications issued “Richard Dimbleby Broadcaster” — a 172- 
page book retailing at 10/6d which traces the career of this famous man. 
Richard Dimbleby’s son, David, who attended the launching reception 
said, “This record is a unique tribute to my father. It not only includes 
excerpts from some of his best broadcasts but it also makes a fascinating 
history of the growth of radio and television coverage over the last 30 years — 
in which he played such an important role. Proceeds from the sale of the record 
will make an invaluable contribution to the cancer fund in his name.” Already 
“The Voice Of Richard Dimbleby” which retails at 12/6d has sold over 35,000 
in advance orders. 

Music for Pleasure albums first entered the market in October 1965 the 
result of a tie-up between the Paul Hamlyn Publishing Group and E.M.I. Paul 
Hamlyn is chairman of the company and Sir Joseph Lockwood, chairman of 
E.M.I. is one of the six directors. Since its inception just over six months ago 
over two million MFP albums have been sold and its outlets include news 
agents, bookshops, chemists and departmental stores as well as the normal 
record shops. One of their best sellers is “The Sound Of Music” which has sold 
over 140,000 copies to date. Holst’s Planet Suite has sold over 35,000 — an 
amazing total for a classical record. To date, none of the label’s releases have 
sold less than 7,000. As well as the Dimbleby record MFP April release com- 
prises “Funny Girl,” Disney’s “Winnie The Pooh,” “Semprini — At Your Re- 
quest,” “Songs Of The Golden West” and “South Sea Island Magic” etc. 

Ken Glancy, CBS managing director, has announced the appointment of Olav 
Wyper as marketing manager. Previously with EMI Records as assistant 
advertising manager, Wyper, who is 28, has spent all his working career in 
the advertising and marketing fields. As well as his marketing duties Wyper 
will be responsible for the company’s creative services department which is 
headed by Peter Lamb. 

It was a pleasure to meet the American group, the Lovin’ Spoonful, at a 
“Welcome to London” reception hosted by Pye Records. On their first visit to 
Britain the boys made their debut on British TV with two appearances on 
“Ready Steady Go” and played club dates in London and the provinces. Formed 
only a year ago the boys have made three records, all of which have entered 
the American Top Ten, and they had a No. 1 recently with their Kama Sutra 
recording of “Daydream.” Although their previous releases have not made 
much impact on the British scene their personal visit timed with the British 
release of “Daydream” has given their their first entry in the British charts. 
“Daydream” is released here on Pye International and published by Robbins 
Music. An album tagged after their hit single has also been released. 

International co-operation between Philips in London and Philips Sonora in 
Stockholm took place recently. Because of the enormous demand for the 
recording of Martin Luther King’s charity show, which took place in Stockholm 
starring American singer Harry Belafonte, G.D.C. a subsidiary distributing 
company of Philips Sonora, was unable to cope with the heavy orders. GDC’s 
managing director Eddie Landquist flew to London with the original ‘mother’ 
and within three days Philips London had pi - essed and dispatched 15,000 copies 
of the album to Stockholm. 

The independent Spot Record company has achieved the distinction of being 
the first record company from outside Italy to be allowed to record inside the 
Vatican. Their mobile recording unit was present throughout the Easter cele- 
brations and they plan a three-record album for distribution throughout the 
world. Spot Records are working in close co-operation with RCA Italiana and 
Radio Vaticano. 

For achieving No. 1 with “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Any More” Philips 
Records threw a celebration party for the Walker Brothers at their Stanhope 
House H.Q. during which managing director, Leslie Gould, presented them with 
a silver disc for sales exceeding a quarter million. Following their current 
British tour the Walker Brothers fly to Germany for club dates and negotia- 
tions are still in hand for an American tour in the summer. 

According to a National Opinion Poll carried out on behalf of pirate ship 
Radio London, more than one third of the population listens to pirate radio 
stations. The four pirates, London, Caroline, 390 and Scotland shared 36 percent 
of the population (52,676,000). Radio London had the biggest audience with 
more than 10,330,000 a week among people over twelve. 

From the new British musical “On The Level” penned by Ron Grainer and

DENMARK . , 

EMI releases for April include a large quantity of classical music on 
Columbia, HMV, Electrola and Odeon. In addition there are also 13 albums of 
classical music, all stereo, on the Erato label, now strongly promoted here. In 
general, if records are available in both stereo and mono, only the stereo 
version is released in Denmark — not only by EMI but by all manufacturers. 
In the pop field, EMI is giving special promotion for the Beach Boys and the 
Yardbirds, the latter now on tour in Denmark. 

Tono Grammofonplader works hard on the low-price h ideho/Summit label 
of which more than 100 albums now are available to Danish record buyers. 
Tono also introduces the American label Request Records at the Danish mar- 
ket, the start being made with 24 albums of folk-songs from 15 countries. On 
Vogue is a new L'do Jurgens single, “Siebzehn Jahr, Blondes Haar. 

Metronome brings out ten new albums with Russian music on the Melodia/ 
Eurodisc label, most of them with world-famous names in Soviet music of 
today, such as David Oistrach, Kyrill Kondrashin, etc. 


PSO, one half of EMI here in Finland (the other half is handled by Music- 
house Westerlund) notes a very good sales result with three titles among the 
top 10 and not less than eight titles among the top 30. The Beatles are of 
course the strongest sales argument, but local lark Katri-Helena is also doing 
very well in the competition. In addition, the LP charts are topped by “Rubber 
Soul” with the Beatles, another PSO release. 

Anders Holmstedt of EMI Sweden visited Helsinki for biz talks with the 
two EMI representants last week. 

A Scandinavian Sonet sales meeting will take place here in near future, 
with visitors from Sonet in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Harry Orvomaa 
and Paavo Einib of Scandia Musiikki Oy, handling Sonet here, will be hosts. 

“Folkkis” (Folk Songs) is the title of a new 12" album from Scandia where 
six artists, such as Hector, Kari Tuomisaari, Juha Vainio, etc. are pxesenting 
15 folk song numbers in Finnish. Of recent singles from Scandia can be men- 
tioned Eino (iron with two local tangos, Kai Lind with “Vanha Sam” (I Will) 
and “Varjo Vain (Is It Really Over), and Danny with “Salattu Suru” (My 
Heart Must Do The Crying) b.w. “Vahiin Ennen Kyyneleita” (El Angel De La 
Guarda). 


NORWAY 

Local group, Pussycats, will be the next Norwegian export in the pop field. 
A few days after the release of their LP titled “Psst!,” it managed to reach 
the fifth spot at the LP sales charts in Norway. In addition, the LP will be 
released in more than 20 foreign countries at the Polydor-International label 
during April, it is reported to Cash Box. The group is a quintet with four 
members originating from Tromsp in northern Norway and one from Stock- 
holm, Sweden. All titles on their LP, excluding “Ebb Tide,” are composed by 
one of the members of the group, the guitarist Finn Graff. 

Arne Bendiksen A/S is now working hard on promoting a new discovery, 
Vigdis Mostad, just out with her debut record including “Hello Love” and a 
Norwegian version of Luxembourg’s Eurovision Song Contest entry, “Ce Soir 
Je T’Attendais.” The company is used to finding its new talents soon growing 
big, examples from recent years are: Wenche Myhre and Kirsti Sparboe. Arne 
Bendiksen reports to Cash Box that there is a good sale of the Austrian 
winning song from the Eurovision Contest, “Merci Cherie” as well as the local 
Norwegian entry in the same contest. The company is expanding, and has just 
moved to another address, Osterdalsgate 1, Oslo 6. Compared with this time 
last year, Bendiksen reports the record sale being 50% higher and sheet music 
sale is three times as high. 

Norsk Phonogram A/S has got another hit with “Dedicated Follower Of 
Fashion” with the Kinks on Pye, this week debuting at the charts. On Philips, 
Sven Ingvars, the Swedish group holds the No. 3 position with their “Saj Inte 
Nej, Saj Kanske” (Don’t Say No, Say Maybe). 

The late Jim Reeves still retains his position as one of the strongest artists 
ever introduced at the Norwegian market. His “Snowflake” on RCA Victor now 
holds a No. 2 position at the charts here. 

SWEDEN 

Philips here has just rushed out “Balladen Om Den Bla Baskern” with 
Anita Lindblom on Fontana. It is “The Ballad Of The Green Berets” in 
Swedish. The flip side includes “Begagnade Rut” (Second Hand Rose). 

Lennart Reuterskibld of Reuter & Reuter AB sounds very enthusiastic when 
he speaks about Joan Baez these days. He is the publisher of her “There But 
For Fortune,” and it looks like a best seller in sheet music field, Reuterskiold 
reported. He has also released a Joan Baez folio, very expensive here (nearly 
$6. — ), but despite the price, it seems to be a top seller. Among other tunes 
Reuter & Reuter AB has obtained for Scandinavia can be mentioned “Do You 
Believe In Magic” and “Day Dream.” The former will be plugged by the 
Lovin’ Spoonful, soon coming to Sweden for a TV show. 

After more than 15 years with Grammofon AB Electra (RCA Victor here), 
Helge Johnsson left the company in the middle of March. He started at Electra 
as producer, but was mainly the head of the sales department. Johnsson is now 
with GDC, the distribution outfit, where he mainly will take care of the budget 
line sales, if and when this hits Sweden. 

Publisher Felix Stahl, now in Paris, reports to Cash Box that he has ob- 
tained Sheila’s great continental success “C’est Toi Qui J’aime” for Scandi- 
navia. It will be published by Stockholms Musikprodukton. Johnny Ward on 
Scan-Disc has recorded a Swedish version of “Memphis Tennessee.” 

Philips here, is busy with the LP from the recent gala show at the Royal 
Opera, arranged for charity (Martin Luther King's Foundation) with among 
others Harry Belafonte as guest star. “The LP sells in quantities as if it were 
a single,” a spokesman for Philips reported to Cash Box. All income of the sale 
goes to the Foundation. 

Sonet Grammofon AB reports great interest in Ernie Englund’s trumpet 
version of this year’s Eurovision Contest winner, “Merci Cherie,” just recorded 
at the Gazell label. So far, the record is planned to be released in at least ten 
countries. 

Belinda is out with “The Hep Stars Songbook” a folio with eight songs, all 
recorded by the Hep Stars on Olga. The Shadows Music (Scandinavia) AB 
has published “I’ll Never Quite Get Over You,” a British tune, while Europa- 
Produktion just published the local copyright “Sunny Girl” by Benny Anders- 
son. 

New on the charts here this week is the local “Ta Av Dej Skorna” (Take 
Off Your Shoes) by Povel Ramel and Beppe Wolgers, and recorded for 
Knappupp by Povel Ramel and the vocal group Gals and Pals. The song was 
the title song in Povel Ramel’s show at the Ideon Theatre last autumn. 

“To you from us — the stamp serial” is the slogan introduced by Grammofon 
AB Electra to promote their new serial of Swedish EPs on RCA Victor, Decca

Cash Box — April 30, 1966 Internationa Section 





Last week we announced that the singing tour of Adamo (EMI) in our 
country should start at the beginning of this week. We have received bad 
news from EMI Italiana. The pop Belgian/Italian singer, was involved in a 
car accident and suffered injuries, that make him unable to perform. The tour 
in Italy has been therefore cancelled. 

We wish Adamo a prompt and complete recovery in the name of all his 
Italian fans hoping to see him here very soon. 

Francois Minchin, head of EMI Italiana, has given to us a copy of the first 
disk sung in French by Pino Donaggio and released in France under the Pathe 
label. The record, which contains the latest of Donaggio’s songs presented at 
the San Remo Festival, has been issued immediately after the performance of 
the pop Italian singer on the scene of the famous Paris’ Music hall the 
“Olympia.” 

EMI Italiana will soon release the first LP of Richard Anthony. The album 
will bring together some of his Italian versions of hits like “Cin . . . Cin,” “La 
Mia Festa,” “Piangi” etc. A strong reaction is expected on the market. 

The name of Caterina Caselli (CGD) was quite unknown some months ago, 
but now r it is in the spotlight thanks to her participation in the San Remo 
Festival, where the young songsti’ess introduced the present No. 1 hit “Nes- 
suno Mi Puo’ Giudieare” which has been the top best seller in our country for 
9 consecutive weeks. 

Caterina has now recorded her new disk titled “L’uomo D’oro” (The Golden 
Man). The new release will be introduced via the pop, summer contest, “A 
Record For The Summer,” finals of which will take place, as usual, in Saint 
Vincent, around the middle of June. 

Other top CGD artist, Gigliola Cinquetti, is leaving this week for a singing 
tour in Spain and Portugal. She will also appear on the TV screens of both 
countries being the star guest of different TV shows. 

By the way, foreign CGD artists have been announced as star guests of our 
weekly TV program “Studio 1.” We wish to mention Nancy Sinatra, who is 
expected in Italy, to perform her present hit “These Boots Are Made For 
Walking,” Riccardo the French artist originally grooving for “Riviera,” who 
will present an Italian recording titled “Per Ognuno C’E’ Qualcuno,” and than 
to conclude the list, there is the French group Les Surfs who will present 
another of their Italian releases entitled “Meritare Molto Di Piu.’ ” 

SAAR has announced the latest Italian recording of Petula Clark titled 
“L’Amore E II Vento” this being the title given to the Italian lyric of the 
original American tune “My Love.” Petula Clark will personally introduce her 
new disk on the TV series “Studio 1” where she too will take part as a star 
guest, during the program of next week. 

SAAR also announced the release of the Italian version of Udo Jurgens’ 
European Festival winning composition “Mei'ci Cherie” which has been issued 
with the shorter title “Merci.” 

Ldo will come in Italy at the beginning of the month of June, when he will 
perform at the second “International Light Music Show” organized in Venice 
by Gianni Ravera. 

We have also received the list of the SAAR’s artists who will take part in 
the biggest summer event “II Cantagiro” (Italy’s Singing Tour) the pop 
contest organized by Ezio Radaelli. SAAR singers and songstresses selected 
for the “A’ team of Cantagiro are Nicola Di Bari, Roberta Mazzoni, and 
Danyel Gerard. 

It is known that Danyel is a French artist, but this year, Radaelli, the 
organizer of Cantagiro, will accept the participation in the contest of foreign 
talents. During past years this participation was strictly reserved to Italian 
artists. 

Two others of SAAR’s artists, whose names have not yet been communi- 
cated, will be included in the “B” team of the Cantagiro. 

By the way, we have been informed that Danyel Gerard, who recently 
opened his own pubbei’y in Paris called “Dany Music,” paid a visit to Dur- 
ium’s office, in his new capacity as a publisher, during his short stay in Milan. 
Milan. 

And now we continue with other news concerning Durium’s artists and 
activities: the pop vocal trio Los Marcellos Ferial left Italy on April 9th 
for their long singing tour in Japan. Japanese TV will profit of course from 
this personal appearance and many TV programs have already scheduled a 
performance of Los Marcellos Ferial. At the same time, another singing tour 
has been announced by Elisabeth Mintangian: we refer to the visit that Little

LIKE FATHER, LIKE DAUGHTERS— Karine and Rebecca are the daughters 
of popular Belgian songster Eddie Defacq, and are popular songstresses in 
their own right. The pair’s first bestseller was “Moi Je Dors Aven Nounours 
Dans Mes Bras” and they have had several successes since then. In this photo, 
along with the girls are Mrs. Brauer, manager of Herman Brauer Music, Mr. 
Darlier, director of Hebra Records and (far right) the happy father. The 
girls’ songs are also composed by Darlier and Defacq. 


ITALY (Continued) 

Tony will make to the United States and Canada during the present fort- 
night. He left Italy on April 12th after having finished filming the picture 
“A Gangster Coming From Brooklyn.” 

David Matalon, who recently took the position of manager of the Curci rec- 
ord associated firm “Cemed-Carosello,” has just left Italy for a long business 
trip in the States and in South America. He will visit New York, staying at 
the Americana Hotel, then he will fly to Buenos Aires where he will stay at 
the Claridge Hotel, he will then go to Brazil, staying in Sao Paulo at the 
Hotel Normandie. He will fly back to New York, before his return to Europe, 
and will also stop in Madrid and Barcelona. He is supposed to be at home at 
the beginning of May. Purpose of the trip is to get in touch with different 
record firms in the various countries to get material for Italy, and to license 
the new Carosello-Cemed production. David Matalon is continuing his own 
activity as a record producer and music publisher, still owning full shares of 
his firm Italdisc/Ducale. 

Alberto Carisch, head of Southern Music in Italy and owner of the record 
firm “MRC” wdiose production is distributed by Decc-a, has introduced to the 
Italian press, during a show expressly organized at the Hotel Principe & 
Savoia in Milan, a new group called “I Pelati” (The Bald Heads). The im- 
pressive group has performed original modern arrangements of some tradi- 
tional Italian folk songs coming from the Italian island Sardinia. Among the 
numbers performed by the group we have to stress “Brunedda Shake” which 
of course is originally published by Southern Music. Good reaction is expected. 

George Albert, prexy of CB, and his wife Edna, accompanied by the CB 
European Director Neville Marten are presently visiting Italy, having a series 
of talks with top people in the Italian industry. A cocktail party will also be 
held by CB at the Hotel Principe & Savoia in Milan. Many music personali- 
ties and artists have been invited.

HOLLAND 


Piet Beishuizen has left Philips Phonographic Industries at Baam as public- 
ity chief. Beishuizen. who pot the post of head of the Committee Collective 
Gramophonerecords Campaign (C.C.G.C.), has been succeeded by B. Bouma at 
the P.P.I. Baarn. 

Holland’s first lady of jazz, singer Rita Revs and her husband pianist Pirn 
Jacobs, opened their “Club a Go Go” at Loosdrecht, near Hilversum, March 5th. 
The very comfortable and country-clubbish bar includes dance-floor and will 
feature mostly live-music. Apart from jazz, presented by Rita and her trio 
and by famous guest-stars, the club will offer shows by outstanding solo- and 
group-entertainers in the teenage-field. First guest on the jazz-scene will be 
the Belgian-Canadian guitarist Rene Thomas and American alto-saxist Cannon- 
ball Adderley. Rene Thomas will be featured in the first Dutch TV’er actually 
recorded at the club. At the opening-reception, much of the Dutch musical 
world and press gave evidence of warm interest. Among guests we noticed, 

J. Haslinghuis, the managing director of Phonogram and many other officials 
from Rita’s recording company. During the opening-show, Rita Reys presented 
popular male-singer Rob de Nijs with whom Rita did a recent duo-recording: ' 
“New Fashioned Waltz” (English lyrics on the Swedish contribution to the 
Eurovision Song Festival 1966) and “Side By Side”. 

Phonogram could catch up successfully with two great new film-productions: 
“Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and “Thunderball”, both having their Dutch premieres in 
many theatres here early April. From the 70 mm. full color-stereo sound pro- 
duction “Uncle Tom”, featuring the late John Kitzmiller in title-role, Phono- 
gram rush-released the music from the sound-track (composed by P. Thomas) 
on a Philips LP and a fast climbing single with the two large choir-numbers 
with baritone-solo: “Mississippi Blues” and “Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho”. 
Title-song from the new James Bond-film “Thunderball,” by Welshman Tom 
Jones on Decca, was put on the Dutch market in January; to stimulate sales, 
special promotion by Phonogram is done by playing the single during theatre- 
intermissions. ' 

A young Dutch musician, singer-guitarist-composer Peter Koelewijn, who 
has been very successful with his own recordings, penned a catchy and rather 
cynical song: “Ik Ben Gelukkig Zonder Jou” (“I’m Quite Happy Without 
You”). The song was recorded by Conny van den Bos on Philips who finds her- 
self the happy interpreter of a sudden hit. Gehman Philips artist Heidi Briihl, 
took over the song in a German version: “Das Kann Mir Keiner Nehmen” in a 
coupling with the German version of The Ballad of the Green Berets: “Hundert 
Mann Und Ein Befehl” (One Hundred Men And One Order). 

Bovema’s Atlantic-label — whose r&b-sales are still moving upwards, this 
week launched new items by: Joe Tex (“The Love You Save”), the Drifters 
(“Memories Are Made Of This”) Solomon Burke (“I Feel A Sin Coming On”), 
Otis Redding (“Satisfaction”) and Deon Jackson (“You Said You Loved Me”). 
Jazztrumpeter Ted Curson — whose 1st LP on the Atlantic-label “The New 
Thing & Blue Thing” was released last year — made a guest-appearance with 
Boy’s Big Band on Thursday 7th April at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. 

Capitol-labelchief Roel Kruyse still reports big sales for A1 Martino’s “Span- 
ish Eyes”, now entering the nation’s Top 20. A special campaign is in the mak- 
ing to push the entire Beach Boys-LP-ctalogue. The group this week hits the 
stands with their latest item “Sloop John B”. 

Parlophone now has the Hollies’ “I Can’t Let Go” on the Hitparade and mean- 
while rushed out Cilia Black’s waxing of “Alfie.” 

Rien Heeremans, HMV’s cantain at the Bovema-diskery, reports CB the 
early-April-releases of Conny Froboess’ “Ich Gehe Durch Den Regen,” a new 
Adamo-7 incher, containing a.o. Salvatore’s songs “Une Meche De Cheveux” and 
“Princesses Et Bergeres.” Also expected to achieve healthy sales are the 
“Olypia ’66-live recordings of French artists Gilbert Beeaud and Sacha Distel. 

Imperial’s comical group the Three Jacquets have regularly waxed their own 
slapstick-songs for the label since May ’62 and they were featured in KRO’s 
“Relaxen” programs for two consecutive seasons. There should be much laugh- 
ter again at their new single “’T Hoedje” (The Little Hat) and “’T Is Haast 
Niet Te Geloven” (It’s Almost Unbelievable), which is due to be released very 
soon. 

Broadway-producer Mr. Alex Cohen flew to Holland last week to watch 
comedian Toon Herman's One Man Show in Amsterdam’s Carre-Theatre. Cohen, 
who complimented the HMV-artist backstage on his success, will be one of the 
key-figures in the promo set-up for Herman’s forthcoming Broadway-debut. 

Manager Wim van Yught of Editions Altona seems to be very much pleased 
with various titles placed within the first ten of the Dutch charts. The Bobby 
Goldboro-title “If You Wait For Love” is a big smasher with the interpretation 
of Dave Berry. Altona controls this title by their U.A. Music. Another break- 
out is the English title “Bald Headed Woman,” recorded by the Jay-Jays on the 
Philips label. This recording was supervised by Altona’s young professional- 
manager Peter Koelewijn, who as a boy of 18 years already received a golden 
record for his own composition “Kom Van Het Dak Af.” Koelewijn also super- 
vised the recording of a new Dutch group called “Q 65” and their title “You’re 
The Victor,” and this original publishing by Altona is also to be found on the 
Dutch charts. On the title “Bald Headed Woman,” Altona has five different 
recordings on the Dutch market. 

Moreover, Altona is very happy with “As Tears Go By” by the Rolling 
Stones. 

Joe Johnson, manager of the Four Star Group in Los Angeles, visited the 
offices of Altona. This pubbery is handled in the palace/Altona-deal and 
brought such titles as “Limbo Rock,” “Send Me The Pillow You Dream On.” 
Special plugs are now being prepared on the Knickerbockers. 

A fine recording in Dutch was done by famous songstress Shirley of the 
Luxemburg-Eurovision-Song “Ce Soil- Je T’Attendais.” The lark introduced her 
recording on the Relax label on the well known TV-program “Voor De Vuist 
Weg.” 

Last week, the Negram-Delta house was visited by the Levy family of Scep- 
ter Records Inc. They discussed a further set up of the Scepter label in Holland 
with Robert Oeges and Hans Kellerman, managing directors of Negram-Delta. 
New Scepter U.S. hit releases which will be given a special push include “I’m 
So Lonesome I Could Cry” by B.J. Thomas & the Triumphs (currently on the 
Top 100), “Message To Michael,” the latest soul record by talented Dionne 
Warwick and "Killer Joe” in a new rendition by the Kingsmen. 

Immediately after this visit, Robert Oeges and Bart Klimmert, program man- 
ager of Negram-Delta, left for Germany in order to talk with Werner Vogel- 
sang, general manager of Ariola Schallplatten and Hans Blume of the Hansa 
production company. The result of this is that Negram-Delta will distribute 
the Hansa records exclusively in Holland from now on. Two new' Hansa 
records will be released very shortly — “Wie Soli Es Weitergehn,” the new one 
by songsti'ess Marion whose “Es 1st Wieder Da” became a favorite of the Dutch 
deejays and "Vorbei Sind Die Tranen” by the popular Elisa Gabbai. 

Negrarn will also distribute the Melodia series exclusively in Holland thanks 
to the cooperation of Ariola Schallplatten. This series is selling hotter and hot- 
ter these days. The records are being praised by many music ci'itics in the 
country.

company that ow'ns part of Gamma Records). Tomas informed that they left 
the distribution of Spanish label Zafiro, which will be represented in the future 
in Mexico by Panamericana de Discos S.A. He also commented on the populari- 
ty that the young singer Raphael actually has in Spain. He is now the most 
popular Spanish ai-tist and is receiving a big promotion to inti-oduce him in 
Mexico. Tomas also brought a new recording made by Italian singer Gigliola 
Cinquetti in Spanish. 

American actor and singer Bob Conrad (Tom Lopaka in Hawaiian Eye) has

who some time ago was recording for Philips. Nadia is actually performing in 
Central and South America, but when she arrives here, she will immediately 
stai't to record and perform at the night club “Quid.” 

Mike Laure, the best seller we have at the moment in the whole country, 
cut at Musart Records a new LP on which he sings songs like “What A Differ- 
ence A Day Makes,” “No Ilores,” “Mai',” “Tampico,” “Calla,” “Noche De Luna 
En Jalapa” and some others 

In the city of Los Angeles will take place El Festival de la Cancion His-

Luis Demetrio and Roberto Cantoral. 

In the past days we received the first record cut by Mexican-Americ-an singer 
Andy Russell for Capitol. The songs are “Enamorado” and “Longin” with the 
accompaniment of Perry Botkin, Jr. Andy Russell is now in Los Angeles re- 
cording and preparing a new TV show where he will be the star and which 
will be transmitted in color. He also is preparing a new album w'here he will

Angelica Maria, Manolo Munoz, Mike Laure, Victor Carrillo, Hilda Aguire, los 
Yorsys and los Aragon. The Volume 2 of the same series has songs done by 
los T.J’s, Luis Moya, Los Dimamicos, Elvia Mendoza, los Happy Bovs, Malu

HOLLAND (continued) 

For the first time in its short history, the Negram-Delta company is now on 
the first two slots of the Dutch hit parade. Number one again this week is 
Nancy Sintra’s winning Reprise platter “These Boots Are Made For Walking.” 
With the success of this disk, Negrarn expects a big seller for the new one by 
Nancy, entitled “How Does That Grab You Darling.” And immediately behind 
“Boots,” we find the Kinks disk “Dedicated Follower Of Fashion.” Proclaimed 
as the best they ever made and selling in the same vein. More success is 
expected when the boys arrive her on May 7. 

New Negram-Delta disks on their way to the top are; Udo Jurgens with 
“Merci Cherie,” Chris Andrews with “Something On Your Mind” The Searchers, 
with “Where Have All The Flowers Gone,” and Trini Lopez with “I’m Coming

Starting in May, local NCRV-TV is to be airing a 15-minute film feature of 
solo performances by famed Rhythm & Blues chanter Josh White. The pro-

The German Record Industry Organization has elected new officers. Former 
president, director, Helmut Haertel who has held the post for over 20 years 
retired of his own volition in favor of director, Hans Lieber, the new president. 
Haertel is a director of D.G.G. and Lieber is director of Teldec (Telefunken- 
Decca). Vice presidents are Leif E. Kraul of Metronome Records and Kurt 
Kinkele of D.G.G. 

The organization awarded a lifetime honorary membership to director 
Haertel. The record sales for the year 1965 were also announced and showed 
the following results. Total sales topped 380 million DM (about 95 million 
dollars). Sales of 12"' LP’s rose by over 50%, single record sales rose, classical 
music accounted for 40% of the total LP sales, export decreased while import 
went up a half a million records and every second LP sold was a stereo disc. 
Here’s how sales looked compared with 1964.

For the first time in several years and since the singles price increase, 
singles sales showed a gain. EP’s and 10" LP’s are on their way out and do 
not play an important role anymore in the business but LP’s racked up tre- 
mendous business. Over 83% of all records sold were sold through regular 
dealers. Interesting is the division between serious and pop music sales. Here’s 
a breakdown.

Export decreased slightly last year with 11.8 million records exported as 
compared with 12.3 million in 1964 with singles showing a 12.2% deci’ease, 
EP’s a 20% decrease, 10" LP’s had a 33.3% decrease and 12" LP’s showed a 
8.9% increase and accounting for 6.1 million or over half of all exports. Pro- 
duction increased 6.3% in singles and 48.8% in LP’s to keep up with rising 
sales. All in all, 66.2 million records were pressed for an increase of 8.8 million 
discs. 

Imports increased by a half million records with singles showing a 7.7 % 
increase to 280,000 records, EP’s a 14.8% increase to 310,000 records, 10" LP’s 
a 50% decrease to 2000 and 12" LP’s a 43.5% increase to 1.55 million records 
to once again take the lion’s share. Stereo is doing so well here that almost 
every major record firm is now only releasing Stereo LP’s (which can also be 
played monorally). 

Emi Bilkenroth of Marbot music has that Frenehy feeling in Germany at 
this time as Charles Aznavour has recoi’ded his “La Boheme” in German and 
Herve Vilard his “Capri E’Est Fini.” Two other French stars, Michel Mallory 
and Erik Montry have also done German disks produced by Barclay chief 
Gaby Richt. Marbot also has a new disc by Ronny to push as the newly formed 
publishing firm for the Teldec artist is now under the supervision of Marbot. 

“The Ballad Of The Green Berets” is shaping up into a monster hit here in 
Germany, but the two main contenders for top honors are both German artists. 
Polydor’s Freddy Quinn has passed the 150,000 mark with his German version 
and Philips fern favorite Heidi Bruhl has booked 80,000 sales to start as well. 
Of course, the big winner of the fight is publisher Francis, Day & Hunter which 
is pushing both contenders and S/Sgt Barry Sadler to boot. 

Radio Luxemburg top deejay Camillo Felgen has signed an exclusive Polydor 
pact. The singer-spinner was inked to Pathe Marcone in France but now has 
a German contract. 

Ivo “Morgen” Robic is having a comeback with “Rot 1st Der Mond.” Know 
it? Well his producer Bert Kaempfert is grinning ear to ear cause Ivo is back 
in his stall as the only artist Bert produces and the first hit is a Kaempfert 
tune known as “Moon Over Naples” or “Spanish Eyes.” All 3 titles are doing 
well in Germany. 

Theo Seeger of Peer Music reports that “The Universal Soldier” is causing 
quite a controversy in old Germany. The tune recorded as “Der Ewige Soldat” 
with German lyrics by Max Colpet who did “Where Have All The Flowers 
Gone” and have kept pretty close to the original lyrics is now the cause of a 
law suit. A recent TVer which showed Polydor lass Dominique and her version 
of the song caused an officer of the German army to sue the TV producer for 
“Making A Fool” Of His Profession.” Another strong push point interna- 
tionally is the new instrumental single by Caterina Valente and brother Silvio 
with “Tico Tico” and “Brazil” which gets a fine modern treatment 

Joan Baez is coming to Berlin this month for her first appearance on TV in 
Germany. She’ll do a whole solo show which should boost her already rising 
popularity considerably. Philips releases her records here.

AUSTRALIA 


The recent dispute by Postal workers against the Federal Government has 
caused more than its share of turmoil in the worlds of industry and commerce 
throughout Australia; the record and music fields didn’t escape. Domestic mails 
were delayed for up to a week at a time, and it seems that overseas mail was 
subjected to even longer delays. The dispute has now been resolved and things 
are back to nox-mal again in mail transmission. 

Australian-born musical star June Bronhill has returned home to play the 
lead in the show “Robert and Elizabeth”; which is a musical based on the 
series “The Barretts Of Wimpole Street.” The show has more than passing 
interest for Australians because the music was written by Ron Grainer, an 
Australian who is now living in London. Ron Grainer recently won an award 
from station 2UE Sydney as the composer of “The Flying Swan” which was 
recorded by trumpeter John Robertson on RCA. 

Local group the Easybeats got a lead story and picture in Cash Box of two- 
weeks ago. This type of exposure via the trade press augers well for the 
American disc future of one of Australia’s most popular groups. Full marks 
go to manager Mike Vaughan for his efforts on behalf of the Easybeats 
during his recent visit to the United States. Several Australian artists have 
had hits in America (Frank Ifield, Rolf Harris, the Seekers) but to date all of 
these records have gone to the U.S. by way of England. We believe the day 
isn’t far off before an all- Australian record makes it big in the States; it 
could be the Easybeats, or it could be M.P.D. Limited, Normie Rowe, Bobby 
& Laurie, or any one of several top local names whose records have just been 
issued in America. 

Visiting American conductor Dean Dixon, who is now leading the Sydney 
Symphony Orchestra, received a big national press coverage following his 
recent comments about racial prejudice. Dixon, an American Negro, was quoted 
as saying that record companies of international standing were refusing to 
record orchestras he was associated with purely because he (Dixon) was 
coloured. It’s pretty difficult to figure why this question had to be brought 
up in Australia where there has rarely ever been even a hint of disturbance 
on the Negro situation. Record companies hotly denied that there was any 
reluctance on their part to record Dixon and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra 
on the grounds of colour. 

Astor Records has launched the Karate label here with the American novelty 
hit “Juanita Banana” by the Peels. 

Popular young local artist Mike Furber has a single out on the newly-formed 
Kommotion label with “You Stole My Love” and “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine.” 
This one could get off-the-ground for young Mike whose previous records 
have proved that he has a solid following with young people.

A few news items from the Promo Department of Discos Continental, which 
incidentally is going through an important phase of reactivation, start this 
week’s column: it is still reflecting in the honour given to Carlos Piper, 
exclusively with the company, when he was awarded with the coveted prize 
“Roquete Pinto”, for his activity as the “best maestro, arranger” of the 
past year. The same award was granted to another group of artists pacted 
by Continental; the ‘‘Os Incriveis” were considered the best “youth-music” 
ensemble of the year. England is becoming an excellent vehicle of the pro- 
motion of Brazilian artists — London’s BBC is requesting a good number of 
recordings by local artists and the latest were two exclusive attractions of 
Continental with “Amor Y Tristeza”, by Orlando Alvarado, and “A Tua Voz”, 
by Os Incriveis. 

Discos Som/Maior (formerly Audio Fidelity do Brasil) has given us a few 
bits of interesting information concerning their latest activities: Dirceu 
Graeser and his fiancee Hilda Cristine are having their Som/Maior disc bow 
with a single that will introduce them to the south-central area of Brazil, 
since they are already known in Parana. Their first single introduces two 
of their own compositions in the teen-music style, titled “Os Nomorados” c/w 
“£ O Amor” — they record under the name of “£les” (They). “Sansa Trio” 
returns with a new formation — Airto Moreira is now the drummer, while 
Jose Briamonti plays the piano and Jose Ordonez is responsible for the bass — 
a good selection of popular modern musical themes completes the album 
which is already being considered as one of the better l'eleases of this year. 


“Bob Fleming na Italia” is an album recorded in the “Dynascope” system of 
Musidisc for the “Masterpiece” label and presents Bob’s sax interpreting 
several Italian hits in his personal style. From the modern popular music 
(ex-Bossa Nova) comes a recording that could become an excellent export 
material, with “Zumba Cineo” a new instrumental group that has a lot to 
show in the MPM line. The president of the company, Nilo Sergio, is showing 
that he can do a lot for this new wave of the Brazilian talent — another instru- 
mental group, “Primo Trio”, is appearing in an LP with all the “Dynascope” 
and exclusive high fidelity quality of the Musidisc studio in Rio. 


Carlos Gonsalves, promo man of Companhia Brasileira De Discos (Philips) 
in Sao Paulo calls our special attention to a new release of the affiliated label 
Forma: it concerns a new LP recorded by a vocal group called Quarteto Em 
Cy — four sisters — who will soon travel to the U.S. This album, produced by 
Roberto Quartim and Wadi Gebara comes with the title “Som Definitivo” 
(Definitive Sound), is likely to be the final consecration of the foursome of 
girls from the “cradle of samba.” An album released by the Mercury represent- 
ed label of CBD, introducing in a larger scale a French chanter who became 
famous in Brazil with just one recording — “Capri C’Est Fini” — is becoming 
a collector’s favorite, especially with another strong number, “Fais La Rire.” 


The Vitale pubbery, which represents in Brazil the editorial repertory of 
United Artists and Unart, is now associated with the promo department of 
U.A. (films), through its pr man, Mauricio Kus, for the promotion of the 
United film music. The hit film “Billie”, featuring Patty Duke, will be released 
in this country in a few months — however Vitale and United are already 
promoting its soundtrack; “A Girl Is A Girl Is A Girl” is already being cut 
by Chantecler, is a Portuguese version of F. da Silva, for an interpretation of 
Carlos Ely. The number is already a hit in Brazil, through Odeon’s recording 
of Pino Donaggio — now, the Copacabana is preparing the Portuguese version 
launched through one of the idols of the Brazilian audiences, Agnaldo Rayol, 
who will give his rendition of “L’Ultima Telefonata”. 

Joao Carlos Martins, a Brazilian musician, is making news in the United 
States. Recently, in Washington DC, Joao Carlos performed a Bach concert 
. . . with three metal fingerstalls, due to an accident which had disabled his 
right hand. Even with this handicap, the young pianist was considered by 
the critics as one of the best to perform in the US lately and acclaimed by 
the public as well. 

We predict that Roberto Carlos will soon be invited to go to the U.S.A. 



Henri Marchal and Soulat gave a big cocktail party in their “Editions Pathe 
Marconi” office in Paris. It was to present a new author-composer-singer, Guy 
Bontempelli. He was awarded two weeks ago the “Prix Revelation” by the 
Academie du Disque Charles Cros. On this occasion, we met an English group 
called the Seekers who were in Paris for a one night show at the Olympia. 
During this party, Henry Marchal told us he got the exclusive rights, for 
France, to Starday Music. Several titles are already recorded in French, 
namely “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Any More” by Richard Anthony and 
“Walkin’ My Cat Named Dog” by Les Surfs. Pathe Marconi also got the 
“Juanita Banana” rights. The French treatment is recorded by Henri Salvador. 
Marchal talked to us about Theo Sarapa who was Edith Piaf’s husband, and 
tells us he is taking a new start with his latest record. 

Antoine, French Dylanesque singer, will be the headliner of an Olympia pro- 
gram with Donovan and Karine. Alain Houblil who manages the “Editions Vogue 
International,” told us that Antoine has just recorded his songs in English, 
Italian and German and will soon release his first English album on American 
market. 

We learn that Music, Music, Music, Inc. publishers of “The Ballad of the 
Gi'een Berets” has assigned the publication rights in France and related terri- 
tories (including 6 African republics and South Vietnam) to Spanka Music 
Corp. 

Through the Pathe label, Tino Rossi just released the French treatment of the 
Eurovision song contest No. 1 “Merci Cherie.” This week United Artist records 
presents an EP album of the music, by Michel Colombier, of the new Vittorio 
de Sica film “Un Monde Nouveau”. Fred Bonguto who was waxed by Inter- 
national is now a festival artist.

Cash Box — April 30, 1966 International Section 



May will be the biggest month for the Japanese pop fan to witness perform- 
ances by foreign artists. Theolonious Monk and his quartet arrive here at the 
beginning of May at the invitation of Tokyo Concert to have a fortnight tour 
through the main cities of Japan. The artist is well-known here as a pianist 
and composer and his “Blue Monk” and “Round About Midnight” are much 
appreciated by modern jazz fans here. 

Duke Ellington and his orch. arrive here on May 12 for a ten day perform- 
ance tour at the invitation of the Kambara Music office. Percy Faith and his 
orch. are to arrive here on May 9 for a fortnight’s tour throughout the major 
cities of Japan, at the request of Nippon Columbia Musical Enterprises. Billy 
Vaughn and his orch. will arrive on May 23 for a ten day series of perform- 
ances and Pat Boone also arrives here for a ten day performance tour on 
May 24. 


John Sabron arrives here on May 22 at the invitation of Ishii Music office 
to participate in the Paris Festival held here on July 14, in which Ivette Jiro, 
now in Japan, is scheduled to appear. 

Ros Indios Tabarajhas, noted for “Maria Elena,” arrived here on April 12 
for several performances in which the American pop songster Ricky Nelson 
is scheduled to appear. 


The Nippon Hoso Kyokai Symphony Orch., the most authorized one here, 
will reportedly have 16 performances overseas in America, Mexico, Brazil, 
Argentina, Hawaii and other countries, between April 28 and May 31, in which 
they are scheduled to participate in the International Festival in Mexico. This 
is their fourth visit, especially characterized as the culture delegate of the 
Foreign Ministry this time, in the wake of the European and American tour 
of I960, the South-East Asian tour of 1962, and the South-East Asian and 
Australian tour of 1964. The orch. consists of 116 members and is conducted 
by Hiroyuki Iwaki and Yuzo Toyama. 

According to the AP report, the Beatles are coming to Japan via West 
Germany at the end of June for only two performances around and in Tokyo 
the first of which is scheduled for June 30 in Tokyo. While Tastu Nagashima, 
representative of Kyodo Kikaku, is negotiating in London for the other. 

While the popular American TVer, “Bat Man,” was set to be broadcast here 
in Japan on May 10, the theme music is now in competition in Japan’s record 
market, as five record companies released or will release more than ten disks 
of the same tune. Nippon Victor released three “Bat Man,” including the 
composer’s one, the sound track one and the vocal one. 


The world group of Nippon Victor worked on “The Golden Series” from 
Sept. 20 of last year (65) to March 20 of this year (66) with successful 
achievement, the top ten records from among the 21 released were reported 
today as follows: “Golden Billy Vaughn Vol. 1,” “European Screen Themes,” 
“All Of Russian Folks,” “Golden Pat Boone,” “Golden Billy Vaughn Vol 2 ”

“Memorial Golden Hits” and “Golden Glen Miller.”

Joe Napoli, the American GI, who during the last war participated in the 
Battle of the Bulge in the Belgian Ardennes, and afterwards organized the 
famous international jazz-festival at Comblain-la-Tour in order to collect 
funds to restore the war-damaged church of this little village, has informed 
Cash Box, that this yfear’s festival is to be held on Saturday Aug. and Sun- 
day Aug. 7. More about the origins of this festival, started in 1959 and known 
to jazz-fans of five continents, can be found elsewhere in this issue. 


Ardmore and Beechwood told us that they have acquired the copyrights on 
the current United Kingdom strong one by the Walker Brothers: “The Sun 
Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore.” It should be added that the Walker Bros, are 
due in Brussels for a TV-appearance soon. The publishing house also owns 
rights to “Someday One Day,” by the Seekers; “Homeward Bound,” by Simon 
and Garfunkel; “Little By Little” by Buddy; “Tiens Bon,” by Richard Anth- 
ony; and two numbers by Marc Aryan “Parce Que Je T’Aime” and “C’est La 
Vie.” 


Jean-Claude Annoux and Theresa recently appeared at the Old Belgium in 
Brussels. Theresa acquired fame during the recent Eurovision Song Festival 
in Luxembourg, where she represented Monaco. The forthcoming appearance 
in Belgium of the following stars from S.A.-Grammophon is announced: Anny 
Cordy, on May 1, in Liege; Gribouille at Middelkerke. Liz Brady was engaged 
by Frans Romeyns for his TV’er. She is a rising lark in Paris with tremendous 
vocal qualities. Liz Brady will feature in “Tienerklanken,” a very popular TV- 
series with famous and less famous stars. 

James Brown was in Paris to present his new release “Papa’s Got A Brand 
New Bag.” Among the bestsellers of the week distributed by Polydor, we still 
find: “Ganz In Weiss” by Roy Black; “Moon Over Naples” by Bert Kaempfert; 
“Hundert Mann Und Ein Befehl” by Freddy. Renate Kern will be staying in 
Belgium on April 21 for the program “Tienerklanken” on the Flemish TV. 

News in the classical music section was provided by manager Holzapfel, who 
informed us that on April 20 a large reception was organized for the presenta- 
tion of a national recording album “The Flemish Music Of The 15th And 16th 
Century Society.” Almost all the pieces of music are borrowed from the fam- 
ous Archiv-series and bearing such well-known names as Dufay, Ockegem, 
Desprez, Lassus, and many others, altogether some 23 pieces from the patri- 
mony of our once so famous and still highly praised 15th and 16th Flemish 
songs. A very remarkable and valuable recording. 

Vogue still remains on top with “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ ” by 
Nancy Sinatra, surely the main top-tune of 1966. Frans Romeyns, talent-scout 
of the “Tienerklanken” section of the Flemish TV-network last week travelled 
to Paris, where he contacted several artists of the Disc A-Z label (represented 
in France and Belgium by Vogue) for one of his next programs, among them 
Romuald, Danyel Gerard and les Troubadours. The renowned Jean-Jacques 
Debout also appears on his list. 


From Barclay the news that there is a chance of a visit to Belgium by 
Sonny and Cher. From a promotion point of view this would indeed be a very 
smart move. While in Paris we heard from Brillant and Helman, of the Bar- 
clay group, that the duet is now working on a flick in the U.S.A. There is a 
possibility that they will be visiting Belgium in early June, for a p.a.- and 
TV-performance. Contacts have been laid with the French and Flemish TV- 
networks. It all now hinges on dates . . . and dollars! 


The Riviera-headquarters in Paris released the first recording of a new 
British find: Neil Christian, with on its A-side “That’s nice.” Christian is to 
travel to Brussels soon to feature in Tienerklanken. 


Cameo-Parkway this week released an LP-album of Chubby Checker, “The 
Greatest Hits.” Many the big successes of Chubby are included on this LP: 
“Baby, Baby, Balia, Balia,” “Stoppin’ in Las Vegas,” “Loddy Lo,” “Lay Elise 
Mollie” and many others. On Chess, Ramsey Lewis with the Beatles tune 
“A Hard Day’s Night” and also a Chuck Berry Album “Fresh Berry’s,” an 
LP on which rock ’n roll and blues alternate: “It Wasn’t Me,” “Run Joe,” 
“Vaya Con Dios,” “My Ford Mustang, ”“Wee Hours Blues.” “Feelin’ Good” on 
Epic by Joe Sherman, is gaining prominence thanks to the company’s con- 
tinued radio promotion. 

Ola and the Janglers, six young men from Sweden, on Funckler present their 
first LP: “Surprise, Surprise” and it contains such tunes as the title song, 
“No No No,” “Leave Me Be,” etc. New releases on United Artists include 
Little Anthony and the Imperials with “Hurt” c/w “Never Again,” Jr. Walker 
& the All Stars present “Cleo’s Mood” on Tamla Town. 

Once again we find Villard on our best-seller list with “Capri C’est Fini,” 
and “Mourir Ou Vivre.” Together with another Philips-artist Michele Torr, he 
put in an appearance for a few days at the Old Belgium, where both got an 
excellent reception by the audience. A cocktail party attended by many jour- 
nalists was arranged for them by Polygram at the Martini Terrace in Brussels. 

J. Darlier of the Herman Brauer publishing house is endeavouring to ar- 
range a visit by Herman’s Hermits. Talks are going on with the Flemish TV. 
It sure would be fine if they were successful for Herman has never before been 
over here with his Hermits. His songs, though elsewhere near the top of the 
hit-parade, have never quite caught on here. Perhaps a visit could change all 
this. Darlier furthermore told us the company owns copyrights on “J’ai Envie 
De Vivre Avec Toi” (I Feel Like Livin’ With You) and “Ne Te Marie Pas 
Sophie” (Don’t Get Married Sophie) by Herve Villard and on Herman’s Herm- 
its song “Listen People” and the first French spoken recording by Herman 
“Je Suis Anglais” (I’m English). Burt Blanca is to feature in a TV-program 
on April 28 and Serge Davignac has again hit a lucky streak: his second re- 
cording is placed number two in a poll of the French radio-producers. 

World Music Group is actively pushing the titles of the Screen Gems cata- 
logue: “A Groovy Kind Of Love” by the Mindbenders, “Soul And Inspiration” 
by the Righteous Brothers and “The Gamma Goochee” by Gamma Goochee. 
The latter is almost certain to be a big hit during the coming holiday season. 
In the Acuff-Rose catalogue “I Fought The Law” by Bobby Fuller Four, just 
released, looks quite promising. Reactions to the most recent Digno Garcia 
recording: “Guantanamera,” and by Luigi: “Nadine,” both on Palette, have 
been very encouraging. 

Les Cousins have just completed a tour of Argentina and the TV-networks 
are negotiating with them for performances. During the coming weeks, they 
will participate in 6 different programs, one of them in Germany. Moreover 
they have just recorded a new remarkable EP “All Right Mamma” and “Four 
Sailors Back Home.”

Lake front hotels, beach clubs, resorts, seaside cafes 
and an occasional country club; for one season out of 
the year they bring an operator more profit than many 
of his year round locations. 


Whether he trucks or sails his phonograph, game or 
vending machine to this location, the operator knows 
that he has to swim while the water is warm. So he takes 
the machine out of storage and dusts it off. Sometimes 
he dusts it twice. 


We think he should polish it and give it a complete 
service check before he sends it out. We think also that 
he ought to be selective and imaginative about what ma- 
chine goes in which location.

Editorial 


Summer has a constant temperature, but people’s 
temperatures vary. The “good time” guy wants a cer- 
tain kind of item and the more sedate soul wants another 
kind entirely. Roughly, these people can be broken down 
into the “I’ll drink with anybody’’ and the “I prefer to 
drink alone” types. “Anybody” wants a big, gaudy, noisy, 
flashing-lights Juke Box. “Alone” wants a console ma- 
chine. And the owners of the locations want the types of 
machines that their clientele want. 


Machines to Match the Season 
. . . THE SUMMER LOCATION 


A good operator should be able to spot the customer 
and read him. But it requires that an operator go out on 
his route — not just send his serviceman to make the col- 
lections and wipe off the dust. 


The summer location, like the yearly banquet and 
dance, requires the dressing to match. If you were in- 
vited to a dinner in your honor, you’d go in a tuxedo. It’s 
a one-time, very big affair. The same holds true for a 
summer location. Give them the best game, the best 
vendor, the best phonograph you’ve got — and make sure 
that the equipment fits the mood of the place and looks 
good. Not a dusting, but a polishing. All the grease 
wiped off. All the mechanisms oiled (but not drowned). 


These are special machines for special locations. They 
are limited editions, like a rare coin — and the operator 
will pull in more coins if he grooms his machines. We 
think the operator should do it himself or stand over his 
mechanic and watch him do it. Phone calls to outside 
servicemen make things easier but a do-it-yourself proj- 
ect is often more practical. 


People like to let go in the summer. Every resort or 
beach club gives itself a spring cleaning before the guests 
come in. They paint, they make repairs, they dust and they 
polish and wash. It’s no different for machines. 


We think brighter machines will bring in brighter 
coins. Try it and see.

fieorg. At Wurl. Mexican 
Distrib To Spawn Electronic 
Products Manufacturing 

MEXICO CITY — An energetic re- 
organization by the stockholders of 
Industrias Riojas, S. A. has program- 
med an accelerated expansion in the 
manufacture of electronic products of 
world prestige, according to its 
managing director Miguel Marquez. 
This company, financed entirely by 
Mexican capital, is oi'esently licensed 
by the Wurlitzer Company to pro- 
duce coin-operated phonographs de- 
signed in the U S. and is manufactur- 
ing Teppaz home record players 
originally designed and produced in 
France. The company has announced 
that it is undertaking the production 
of Sony equipment designed and 
presently built in Japan. “This line 
will include TV, radios, recorders and 
video tape units which must be manu- 
factured to assure highest quality and 
efficient service and still sell at the 
reasonable prices offered in the elec- 
tronic industry of Mexico,” Marquez 
stated. 

“The new group of stockholders 
which have invested in Industrias 
Riojas, S. A. are aware that Mexico 
is going through a most important 
growth period which will inevitably 
result in its becoming ever increas- 
ingly well developed from a produc- 
tion standpoint in the international 
field,” the managing director said. 
The investment of local funds in the 
industrial development of Mexico has 
accelerated greatly, as a favorable 
trend for investors has been created 
by the Mexican Government through 
the Secretaries of State, Dor Antonio 
Ortiz Mena and Don Octaviano 
Campos Salas. The assembly of stock- 
holders recently in session appointed 
a Board of Directors which will func- 
tion during the period 1966-67. 

In every instance, products manu- 
factured in Mexico are increasingly 
dependent upon parts created in that 
country with a minimum of imported 
components. In the case of the Wur- 
litzer model 3010 (one-hundred selec- 
tion phonograph), the only parts 
imported from the United States are 
comnlex die castings which must be 
produced by molds costing tens of 
thousands of dollars. It would be im- 
practical to try to duplicate these 
expensive dies in view of the reason- 
ably limited production; hence, the 


CHICAGO — Nate Feinstein, World 
Wide Distributing Company, distribu- 
tors in this area for the Seeburg 
Corporation and Williams and United 
amusement games, last week reported 
that the recently created “Pickup in 
Springfield” service for areawide coin 
machine operators is already proving 
to be “highly successful.” In this new 
branch setup, William (Art) Wood, 
World Wide’s regional sales director, 
maintains an office and warehouse 
space at 417 North Fourth Street in 
Springfield, Illinois; and is normally 
on hand there on Mondays and Tues- 
days for the convenience of coin ma- 
chine operators in and to the north of 
Springfield. 

World Wide Distributing Co. stocks 
new Seeburg “Electra” coin-operated 
phonographs, Williams flipper amuse- 
ment games, United shuffle alleys and 
the new Seeburg cigarette venders.” 
This perpetual stock is available at 
any time in the day for pick-up,” ac- 
cording to Feinstein. 


Deadline For MOA 
Insurance-April 30th 

CHICAGO — Fred Granger, executive 
vice president of Music Operators of 
America (MOA), last week issued a 
double-barreled deadline reminder to 
members of the national association. 
He first advised that April 30 of this 
year is the deadline for all Group 
Insurance participants to open the 
enrollment for their employees. This, 
he explained, is a precedent worth 
noting. 

Secondly, Granger cautioned MOA 
members not to risk losing their 
MOA insurance by failing to remit 
their annual association membership 
dues. Actually, insurance eligibility is 
based upon * active membership in 
MOA. 

He further explained that the as- 
sociation’s insurance program, on the 
whole, is faring very well, and that 
it is hoped by the officers and direc- 
tors that everyone will cooperate to 
keep it on an “even keel.” 

Furthermore, Granger advised that 
numerous exhibitors and operators 
have been inquiring about the forth- 
coming MOA Convention. Therefore, 
he issued the following vital infor- 
mation to the inquiring Cash Box 
reporter : 

The convention is slated for 
October 28-30 in the Pick-Congress 
Hotel. Exhibitors will be able to set 
up all day from 9:00 a.m. on the day 
preceding the convention (October 
27). The convention will follow the 
very same general format (with con- 
siderable improvements) as last 
year’s annual trade show. 

Exhibits will open at 9:00 a.m., 
Friday, October 28. The Seminar will 
be held during the afternoon. Also, 
the big MOA Membership Meeting is 
scheduled for Saturday, October 29. 
The gala banquet and floor show will 
be held on Sunday evening, October 
30. Also in the planning stages is an 
interesting program of activities for 
the ladies in attendance with their 
husbands. 


import of such sections is permitted 
to allow the overall completion of 
the product. New Mexican industries 
are currently being created to manu- 
facture all or nearly all of the parts 
necessary to produce products of a 
complicated nature which will be sold 
within Mexico and to other countries 
in South America. 


Wood advised that his customers 
have expressed their appreciation to 
him for this “instant service” and the 
opportunity to “drop in and chat 
awhile with me in this new branch 
facility.” 

He cited the example of one opera- 
tor located about 45 miles north of 
Springfield who sorely needed a 
phonograph and two games for a loca- 
tion. Within an hour after he phoned 
Wood he accomplished the pickup and 
delivery of the equipment to the new 
location on Friday afternoon, in plenty 
of time for the weekend action. 

Emergency pickups have already 
been made there during the evening 
hours as well as in the daytime. Wood 
suggested to his customers that he 
can generally be reached in his nearby 
motel room whenever he is not in his j 
office at the World Wide facility. 

Wood, who has been associated with j 
World Wide Distributing Co. for more 
than eight years, is a veteran in the 
coin machine business since 1930. 


Decision On N.Y. State 
Sales Tax Case Offered; 
Operator To Appeal 

ALBANY, N.Y.— New York State 
coin machine operators, waiting since 
early March for a decision in the test 
case of Bathrick Enterprises vs the 
State Attorney General’s Office — a 
judgement which would decide the ap- 
plication of the State’s sales tax law 
(Article 28, in effect since August, 
1965) on their collections, will have 
to wait a little longer. 

Senator Jeremiah Moriarty, legal 
representative for the coin machine 
operating firm, argued against the 
Attorney General’s opinion that all 
machine collections (in excess of 10^ 
per play) were taxable under the 
law’s “Admissions” definition. The 
Attorney General further advised that 
Bathrick Ent. was out of order in 
seeking the Declaratory Judgement. 

Senator Moriarty won on both 
points: (1) machine collections were 
ruled not applicable under “Admis- 
sions”; (2) the procedure for obtain- 
ing the Declaratory Judgement was 
correct. 

Although these two points were 
gained, the Court ruled that collec- 
tions were applicable under a new 
definition (Section 1101, Paragraph 5) 
which would include them under sales 
defined as rentals, barters, licensed 
equipment etc. in effect, beginning a 
brand new case. 

MONY Attorney Teddy Blatt said 
the Court’s decision to tax collections 
under “licensed equipment” was based 
upon a similiar ruling passed in Wil- 
liamsport, Pa., but under different 
circumstances. “We feel the Court 
was in error here and we will defin- 
itely appeal,” Blatt stated. 

All sources close to the case felt 
confident in winning the points they 
originally went to court to decide, but 
were disappointed in the Court’s Sec- 
tion 1101 interpretation. They as- 
serted that an appeal will be sought — 
bringing the case to the State 
Supreme Court’s Appellate Division. 
Operators are advised not to render 
any sales tax until the final decision 
is in. 


New Orleans Council 
Intro's Machine Tax Bill 

NEW ORLEANS— The City Council 
has introduced an ordinance which 
may put a five per cent tax on pin- 
balls and phonographs. 

Reviving a tax law which has lain 
dormant since 1934, the measure was 
introduced by council president J. V. 
DiRosa, “by request.” 

The name of the party or parties 
requesting the ordinance was not 
given, but the proposed tax follows 
closely the protest by Harry J. Batt 
Sr., owner of the Ponchartrain Beach 
Amusement Park. Batt said that ad- 
missions taxes (at five per cent) had 
hurt his business in the last few 
years, and complained that a city 
auditing of his company’s books 
showed a back-tax debt of over 
$ 100 , 000 . 

The proceeds of the suggested juke 
box and pin game tax would go to the 
city’s welfare department for the 
maintaining of the institutions it 
operates. 

Finance director R. E. Develle said 
he was not prepared to estimate the 
proceeds under an enlarged amuse- 
ment tax, “but at five per cent on pin- 
balls, it would increase the take.” City 
laws make the amusement tax appli- 
cable to “mechanical devices operated 
for pleasure or skill,” but the law has 
never been enforced and no collections 
have ever been made on proceeds 
fi'om juke boxes or amusement games. 

The legal right for the City of New 
Orleans to collect these taxes is now 
] somewhat unclear, and the new 
ordinance is general in language, 
| reading, “The term ‘admission’ shall 
1 be defined to include any charge or fee 
I for the purpose of self -participation 
in any amusement activity.” 

The proposed ordinance will prob- 
ably come up for a vote on May 5th, 
only three days after the new city 
council takes office.

Something For Springfield Ops From World Wide 


Whitcomb Named 
Southeast Wurl. Rep. 

NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y— The 
appointment of William L. Whitcomb 
as regional sales manager for the 
southeastern states has been an- 
nounced by Robert H. Bear, Wurlitzer 
manager of sales. The appointment 
to this position was effective April 
1st. 

“Bill, as most of his friends in the 
trade know, has long been associated 
with the coin-operated music business 
— in fact, for 29 years — most recently 
as branch manager of the Tampa, 
Florida office of a leading coin ma- 
chine distributor where he also man- 
aged a one stop,” said Bear. He had 
previously served in a similar capac- 
ity in a Jacksonville distributorship. 

His territory will encompass the 
areas covered by the following 
Wurlitzer distributors: Brady Dis- 
tributing Company, Charlotte, North 
Carolina; Diamond Coin Machine 
Exchange, Inc., Norfolk, Virginia; 
F.A.B. Distributing Company, Inc., 
Pensacola, Florida; Peach State 
Music Company, Macon and Atlanta, 
Georgia and Columbia, South Caro- 
lina; Rock City Distributing Com- 
pany, Inc., Nashville, Tennessee and 
Southern Music Distributing Co., 
Inc., Miami, Orlando and Jackson- 
ville, Florida. He will be head- 
quartered in Atlanta, Georgia. 


Spotlight On The 
Seeburg Service Team 

CHICAGO — It hardly resembles the 
Seeburg Electra phonograph but 
such it is and in a most unusual 
form, for this is the latest model 
Seeburg phonograph in a special 
portable breakaway design used for 
service schools throughout the 
country. 

Each fits into special shipping con- 
tainer for its trip around the country 
with a Seeburg Music-Games Divi- 
sion field engineer who chauffeurs it, 
and himself, in a 1966 Chevrolet sta- 
tion wagon. The equipment is used 
for school instruction at the offices of 
Seeburg distributors throughout the 
country. In addition, distant opera- 
tors are able to have the Seeburg 
engineer come and conduct schools on 
his premises. The units are easily set 
up ready to operate. They are also 
built so that engineers can easily 
introduce “troubles” into the equip- 
ment which the students then try to 
locate and remedy. 

“We are proud of the pioneering 
work Seeburg has done with its field 
engineering division,” said William 
F. Adair, Seeburg executive vice 
president for sales. “Our men are 
pretty versatile in languages, as well 
as engineering, for we have students 
from other countries who come to our 
schools in Chicago. While most speak 
English, they are heartened to find 
many of our instructor-engineers 
able to converse with them in their 
native tongue. Only a few weeks ago, 
one of our field engineers conducted 
a school in Puerto Rico speaking 
only in Spanish. This kind of versa- 
tility, matched with our outstanding 
products, makes an unbeatable com- 
bination,” he said. 


Gathered round the breakaway 
phonograph are, left to right, train- 
ing division manager Freeman E. 
Woodhull, engineers Harry E. Jones,

Shohat, assistant manager of field 
service for the music and games 
division, and the manager himself,

A. A. Steiger Talks on the How, Where and How Far of Scopitone 


A. A. Steiger is one of the newest fig- 
ures in the coin machine industry. As 
president of Tel-A-Sign, a major manu- 
facturer of point of purchase advertis- 
ing signs, he began to look for an auxili- 
ary product, and acquired the American 
manufacturing and distributorship rights 
to Scopitone, a coin-operated audio vis- 
ual machine, in 1964. The machine it- 
self had been on the market since 1963. 
When Tel-A-Sign took over the U.S. i 
manufacturing and franchising rights, 
Scopitone received a high-powered pub- 
licity campaign and cracked a number 
of locations which had been thought of 
as impossible before. Films for the unit 
were being shot in Hollywood featuring 
entertainers such as Debbie Reynolds 
and Kay Starr. Steiger, who began as a 
lawyer holding two degrees from West- 
ern Reserve University, is almost never 
in his Chicago office; negotiations and 
distributorship franchises keep him on 
the road most of the year. At the time 
of this interview he was preparing to fly 
to Los Angeles, Hawaii and Japan to 
contract with distributors and manu- 
facturers for the machine. 


Q. Scopitone is originally a French 
machine — 

A. There were a couple of thousand 
of them on the Continent. It was 
really a tried machine before we took 
it over. 

Q. How did it begin in France? 

A. There is a company in France with 
a horribly long name which I could 
give you, but it’s simpler to use their 
initials — call it CSF. It is the largest 
electronics firm in Europe, employing 
thirty-five thousand people. Some 
years ago the French Government 
asked them to design a camera and a 
projector for use in aerial reconnais- 



A. A. STEIGER 
"It takes a little vision." 


sance, with a special long-life film. 
This camera and projector is the guts 
of our unit, and the film we use is the 
same. It has been light-tested by CSF 
and found to have no damages after 
6000 runs; no damage to the film or 
the soundtrack. 

Q. Have you made any changes in the 
Scopitone? 

A. Yes. We made some modifications; 
we redesigned the cabinet and the se- 
lection panel and transistorized it. But 
the internal parts are exactly the 
same as were designed for the French 
Air Force. 

Q. So that CSF designed the Scopi- 
tone. 

A. Not exactly. CSF, as I said, is a 
huge company. The Cameca division 
designed the machine. 


Q. As a spur of the moment thing? 

A. No. It was carefully designed as 
an entertainment unit. They say they 
spent six million dollars in the design 
and production of the first Scopitone. 

Q. Where does the name come from? 
A. Well, “Scopi” means “sight” — I 
think it’s a Greek word originally. 
And “tone” of course, means “sound.” 
“Sight and sound,” that’s what it 
means. 

Q. Why did you go after the machine? 
A. Weil, I think you know the kind 
of business we’re in. We make point 
of purchase advertising signs, lighted 
signs, for such clients as Pepsi-Cola, 
Standard Oil, Zenith, and so on. It’s a 
lucrative business but the competition 
is very tight and we wanted to aug- 
ment our income with another product. 
We see the potential of advertising 
on the Scopitone, which we will do 
eventually. 

Q. How many Scopitones are there on 
location right now? 

A. Fifteen hundred. 

Q. In the United States? 

A. Yes. 

Q. You hold the franchise rights for 
the Western Hemisphere, don’t you? 
A. As a matter of fact, we own more 
than that. I just got a call from Paris 
yesterday and we now have the fran- 
chise rights for the entire world, ex- 
cept France. 

Q. The whole world? 

A. The entire world. We have just 
placed our first distributor in South 
American and we have one in South 
Africa. 

Q. How many distributors do you have 


in the United States? 

A. Fifty-four. 

Q. Who are some of them? 

A. Atlas in Chicago, Pioneer in Mil- 
waukee, Martab in Miami. 

Q. What was the attitude of distribu- 
tors and operators when Scopitone 
was introduced? 

A. Well, it was a new item and some 
of them weren’t sure about it. But I 
think the industry is taking a second 
look. There is a trend in what you 
can call the “coin-machine area” 
where the placing of a Scopitone in 
a location with a phonogx-aph or a 
vending machine or a game helps all 
the units. A customer will watch the 
Scopitone and buy a pack of ciga- 
rettes. He’ll stay around for awhile, 
and in a bar that’s the most impor- 
tant thing, of course. 

Q. There has been talk of a Scopitone 
hurting other machines in a location — 
A. Oh, nonsense. For the first week or 
two the novelty aspect of the Scopi- 
tone will draw most of the attention, 
but it doesn’t hurt the music box. As 
a matter of fact, both machines usu- 
ally enjoy more play. They work well 
together. 

Q. Have there been any new develop- 
ments in the price of film or the cost 
of the machine itself? 

A. Well, we are very pleased with the 
reception of the machine by the pub- 
lic. We hope, at the end of the year, 
to either reduce the price of the ma- 
chine or to give the distributor and 
operators more film for the same 
price. 

Q. How is film production going?

A PROFILE ON A. A. 
STEIGER: SCOPITONE 

(Continued from page 72) 

A. Rapidly. We are making six films 
a month and are about twenty films 
ahead of our production schedule now. 
Last year we produced fifty; this year 
we will produce between ninety-six 
and one hundred. 

Q. Cameca in France has a library of 
films. 

A. Yes, they have about three hun- 
dred and we have about sixty-five. So 
we could show one new Scopitone film 
a day for a whole year. 

Q. How do you make them, or who 
makes them and where? 

A. Most of them are shot out on the 
coast. We use Harman-EE Produc- 
tions, headed by Irving Briskin. Briskin 
was a vice president of Columbia Pic- 
tures under Harry Cohn’s presidency 
some years ago. Now he does nothing 
except manage Debbie Reynolds and 
make Scopitone films. He picks the 
directors and supervises the produc- 
tion. 

Q. How long does it take a Scopitone 
to pay for itself? 

A. Less than fifteen months on the 
average. I will tell you, and you may 
not believe it, but some of the ma- 
chines have paid for themselves in as 
little as five months. But those are 
unusual cases. 

Q. Where do they go on locations? 

A. Anywhere. The Hilton Hotel chain 
called a meeting of all their food and 
beverage directors and told them to 
install a Scopitone in each hotel. This 
was based on the performance of the 
Scopitone at the Palmer House here 
in Chicago. And the Holiday Inn 
wants a unit in every one of their 
motels. That’s some six hundred loca- 
tions. I’ll give you an example. We 
opened in Indianapolis last week with 
the formal announcement of a distrib- 
utorship. Some of the machines were 
already out on location. One man — I 
think his name was Lavinsky — had 
one in his cafe. He told reporters from 
the local TV station that his liquor 
business had increased by thirteen 
hundred and eighty dollars over the 
same time last year. 

Q. You said that the Holiday Inns 
wanted a Scopitone in each motel. 
Does that mean a direct sale? 

A. Well, that’s what they asked, but 
I said no. I would rather have the op- 
erators do it. They know the coin ma- 
chine business. We have a service 
school in Chicago and we insist that 
all our distributors send their me- 
chanics there for training. They study 
a two week course and go back fully 
able to service and supply the ma- 
chine. 

Q. Are operators picking up on the 
Scopitone? 

A. They are beginning to, but I want 
to emphasize that Scopitone is not a 
flash in the pan. It has to come. We 
hope to see the industry break down 
and welcome it. It takes a little vision 
— most operators see Scopitone as an 
adjunct to units already on hand. 
Well, games are great, vendors are 
great, phonographs are great, but 
Scopitone is also great. I see nothing 
but tremendous, tremendous expan- 
sion for the audio-visual machine, 
even beyond the entertainment field. 
The educational field is almost limit- 
less. The French government has 
placed an order for eighty thousand 
units from Cameca to be used in 
schools. The United States govern- 
ment has set aside two billion dollars 
for audio-visual development. Not 
only schools, but supermarkets, auto- 
mobile showrooms, retail stores like 
Sears and Montgomery Ward, in-flight 
movies on airplanes. These are mar- 
kets for entertainment and advertis- 
ing. 

Q. You mean something like coin-op 
pool tables going to the home market? 
A. Yes. We plan to introduce a home 
unit at the end of the year, about the 
size of a twenty-six inch table model 
television, at a price which a family 
can afford. We have a great engineer-

Q. You travel quite a lot — 

A. This afternoon I’m going to Phoe- 
nix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, 
Hawaii and Japan to set up distribu- 
torships. Some Japanese companies 
have expressed interest in manufac- 
turing the Scopitone under license 
from us. We are so busy these days 
that I don’t have much time to myself. 
I have a family and belong to a coun- 
try club. Other than that, I work like 
a beast. 


HOLLYWOOD — Due to increased de- 
mands for use of Scopitone, an ex- 
pansion program has been instituted 
by Irving Briskin, executive producer 
of Harman-EE Productions. Briskin’s 
new program will call for exclusivity 
of talent employed by Harman-EE 
which to date has filmed 50 films per 
year since its formation two years 
ago. Demand for additional Scopitone 
product has cued Briskin to elevate 
production by an additional 22 films 
this year. 

In line with this build-up, Briskin 
has signed singers Joi Lansing and 
January Jones to exclusive five-year 
contracts to Harman-EE Produc- 
tions. This marks the first talent ever 
put under exclusive contract by com- 
pany which plans to sign additional 
stars to similar pacts. Hal Belfer di- 
rects all films for Scopitone, and Fred 
Benson coordinates talent and produc- 
tion under Briskin’s direction. 



and you zero in on higher profits. 

American s Imperial Shuffleboard has earned the reputa- 
tion of being the “standard of the coin industry." In

ATLAS MUSIC COMPAN 



ON COIN ROW THIS WEEK — Mike Munves was on the phone with brother 
Joe as we entered the Munves office. Joe’s upstate on a sales tour and was 
calling in orders. We asked Mike what the customers wanted. “Everything, 
everything. We’ve got so many orders in we can’t ship ’em all.” Packaged units 
were lining the walls, ready to go out. ... At United East Coast the show- 
rooms were bare — all sold out and waiting for more from Williams. . . . Abe 
Lipsky, UJA’s Man of the Year, is moving plenty of pool tables and used 
cigarette machines these days; his showrooms to are getting that “sold out” 
look. . . . A1 d’lnzillo spread his arms and said, “What can I tell you? We have 
a double shift at the factory, working all night and all day Saturdays, to get 
enough ‘ElectroPooT tables out to the customers. The game was two years in 
the making and we knew it would be popular — but we never dreamed it would 
go over like it has. Just tremendous!” Even the demonstration table was gone 
from the Albert Simon showrooms. . . . Irving Green, son of Runyon Sales Co. 
president Irving Green, will be working at the New York showrooms part of 
the week on a regular basis now ; the rest of the time he’ll be on the road for 
Rowe. Irving Kempner and Louis Wolburg are giving Irving some tips on the 
trade, and they’re two of the best teachers around. . . . There are new feminine 
additions to the Runyon staff this week, but blonde and blue-eyed Sandy 
Rasnitzky — ah, she has won our heart and remains our favorite. And she 
makes a good cup of coffee. We always seem to time our entrance to the 
Runyon showrooms just at the coffee break. Louis Wolburg reminds us that 
there will be a Rowe AC service class at the New York offices Wednesday, 
April 27th, starting promptly at six in the evening. The brand new Rowe Band 
Stand phonograph will be looked into. . . . Dave Freed and Milt Tucker of 
Musical Distributors were busy unloading parts and records when we saw 
them. They have Chicago Coin’s “TV Baseball” game in the showrooms now, 
and quite a game it is — especially the animated players which dash from base 
to base. Murray Kaye, Atlantic sales ace, preparing to wind up a busy and 
productive day when we saw him. Orders were piled high on his desk for 
Seeburg Electra phonographs and the vendor line. So it was a busy day on 
Coin Row. . . . 

GET TOUGH — Howard Kaye is more than enthusiastic about the sales of 
“Tough Guy,” the new Irving Kaye fibreglass cue — “I’m ecstatic. I’d say the 
ratio between our cue and a wooden cue is ten to one on life. And you can’t 
break them. You know how it is — a guy misses a shot and bangs the cue down 
on the table and boom, it goes flying off in forty dix-ections. Some opei-ators 
have to spend twenty dollars a week on replacements. They don’t have to 
spend anything on replacements with ‘Tough Guy’. The demand for it is so 
hot — this is no con — we’ve had to set up another production line to handle it.” 

MOA DRIVES ON WITH DRIVE — Since the first of the year, the men from 
MOA have been going all out in their membership drive and president John 
Wallace announced last week that one hundred new faces have come into the 
MOA fold. The goal is 250, and Wallace promises to keep up the push. 

BUSINESS IN BOSTON IS BOOMING— Marshall Cares of Trimount Auto- 
matic Sales was in a rush, but here’s the gist of what he said: “Hello ... I’d 
like to talk but I don’t have the time. No, no, business is good; that’s the prob- 
lem. I have so much coming in and so much going out. ... I got a hundred 
new Gottliebs in Monday . . . ‘Central Park.’ . . . pool tables ax - e coming in one 
door and going out the other. ... I had two men in the shipping room and now 
I’ve had to put on three more. . . . yes, we woi*k overtime . . . we do what we 
have to do until it’s done. ... Yes, the Massachusetts Operators Association 
is going well. . . . we have an executive board meeting next Monday and I’ll be 
able to — hold on — no, put that one over thei-e . . . over there . . . right — excuse 
me. . . . We have an executive board meeting on Monday and I’ll be able to 
tell you more then. . . . yes, business is going crazy . . . everything’s going 
strong . . . better let me get back to work.” 

BOOTLEGGING — The romantic picture of a beat-up coupe that sags in the 
trunk, racing along a highway with a yowling police car behind it, may be 
amusing. Certainly it is profitable. New profits are coming in because of a 
New York state sales tax on cigarettes. Instead of moonshine, the genial boys 
in the pink shirts are now hauling smoke across the border. North Carolina, 
where most of the major tobacco firms are located, is the central source of 
supply for the truckloads of bootleg butts. New York state revenue losses are 
running towards 30 million dollars a year and cigarette vending operators are 
being hurt from both sides. All because of a tax somebody in Albany thought 
would be a good idea and would bring in all kinds of lovely money. Nice going. 

HERE AND THERE — Harman-EE Productions president Irving Briskin has 
signed singers Joi Lansing and January Jones to exclusive five year contracts. 
The dolls will devote their time and talents to making films for Scopitone, the 
coin-operated audio-visual machine. Briskin’s Harmon-EE group, which films 
and supervises all the Scopitone pei'formances, also announced an expanded 
production schedule for an additional 22 films this year. . . . John Abbott is 
the arranger on juke box favorites Reparta and The Deirons’ new release, 
“Nobody’s Baby Now” on RCA Victor i-ecords. 

C. B.’S STATE-HOPPING TROUBLESHOOTERS— Wurlitzer’s C. B. Ross 
and his team of service school instructors ought to be sprouting wings on their 
feet after the amount of service sessions they’ve conducted up and down the 
Eastern seaboard over recent weeks. C. B.’s mighty happy with results of 
his “on location” series of classes, especially with the operator-mechanic 
turnout and enthusiasm for learning. Some of the scores of service personnel 
attending the various sessions included: at Harry Gregg’s class in Florence, 
S. C. — James C. Barrett of Bill’s Amusement Co., Charleston, S. C.; Hoyt 
McCormick, Roger Cribb, Daniel Thompson, Simmie Britt, Bob Graham and 
Johnny Wilburn of Rosemary Amusement Company, Conway, S. C. and Cecil 
James and William Stokes of Keel’s Music Company, Florence, S. C.; at Hank 
Peteet’s session in Greenville, S. C. — Larry Holland of Seneca, S. C.; Harold 
Johnson of Watt Music Co. Anderson, S. C.; E. B. Trammell of Trammell 
Music Co. Greenville. S. C.; Alex Norris and Bryant Lord of Hooper Music Co., 
Piedmont, S. C.; John W. Fant of F & S Coin Machine Company, Anderson,

Nichols of Nick's Music Company, Greenville, S. C.; George Christenberry and 
Burney Crowson of Witt Music Co., Greenville; Buck Brown of Galloway Music 
Co., Easley, S. C.; Merlin Stutz of Merlin Stutz, Greenville, and Scales 
Morris of Southern Amusement Company, Greenville, S. C. ; at Hank’s Class

Chicago Chatter 


An important reminder to vending operators: NAMA’s Midwestern Regional 
Council meeting is slated for Saturday, May 14, in the Continental Plaza Hotel 
in Windy City. This session has a “don’t miss” tag on it as many vital issues 
are on the agenda. Among the NAMA brass on hand will be W. Jack Manning, 
Jr., president of NAMA: James McGuire, of Canteen Corp., of first vice presi- 
dent; Tom Hungerford, executive director; Walter Reed, publicity director; 
Richard Funk, legislative counsel; Sid Schapiro, convention and advertising 
manager; Gib Tansey, NAMA’s meeting director; Steve Polcyn, asst, publicity 
director; and many more staffers. 

The present “occasional showers” weather reports are not stunting the 
enthusiasm of distribs in this area since the doors are swinging wide bringing 
the shopping conscious operators into the showrooms. All indications thus far 
aim at the strong possibility of one of the best Spring seasons in all areas, 
including manufacturing, distribution, and collections on the vital operator 
level. 

Rock-Ola Mfg’s. Hugh Gorman and Les Rieck hit the long trail last week 
intending to cover as much area on the national scene as possible calling on 
Rock-Ola distributors. The sales desks are directed by Edward G. Doris, execu- 
tive vice prexy; and adchief George Hincker. . . . Empire Distribs owner Gil 
Kitt and vice prexy Joe Robbins issue a reminder to their European importer 
trade that the bustling Port of Chicago is “wide open,” and that Empire is 
celebrating the occasion with a huge Spring Sale of used music, amusement 
games and vending equipment which can be shipped across the ‘pond’ immedi- 
ately. Empire’s cable address is EMCOMACH. 

During a visit to Williams Electronic Mfg. Corp. last week we huddled with 
Prexy Sam Stern, sales chief Bud Lurie, Bill DeSelm, Herb Oettinger and Jack 
Mittel, and Robert Moulder, manager of Seeburg’s training engineering staff; 
and Murray Shohat, asst, manager. Purpose of this powwow was to put into 
motion a strong training school program on the distributor level featuring 
Williams and United coin-operated amusement games. . . . The much traveled 
Bert Davidson, Wurlitzer’s midwest regional manager, is back on the road. 

A terse query to Gottlieb execs Alvin Gottlieb, Nate Gottlieb and Judd Wein- 
berg about the potential of Gottlieb’s “Central Park” single player brought a 
very positive assent. It is reported to be gaining wide acceptance in the 
majority of the international coin machine markets. . . . Business is certainly 
booming at Atlas Music Co. during these fine Spring days, according to Prexy 
Eddie Ginsburg and vice prexy Sam Gersh. Constant busy-bee Joe Kline tells 
us he scarcely gets a few precious moments off the telephone of late. Chuck 
Harper and Bill Phillips back on the road calling on customers. 

Rowe AC Mgr’s. Paul Huebsch took off on a road trip early last week. His 
first stop was in St. Paul, Minn, calling on Kenny and Johnny Glenn, K.C. Sales 
& Services. He then aimed for Milwaukee where he pow-wowed with Joel 
Kleiman and Sammy Cooper. Next stop on Paul’s itinerary was Oklahoma City 
to visit with Harlan Drake and Sam Diehl, at Automatic Music Sales Co. . . . 
Jack Moran, director of the Institute of Coin Operations, in Denver, was a 
Windy City visitor last week. He met briefly with several prominent coin 
machine company executives, and is due back in town in a few weeks for more 
meetings. Before departing Jack haopily informed that he has 44 new students 
signed up for the new term in his Denver school. 

MOA Secretary Jim Tolisano writes to inform that although the recent 
violent storms tore up quite a bit of real estate in the Tampa-Clearwater 
(Florida) area neither he nor any of his equipment suffered any appreciable 
damage. Oh, yes, Jim is still very much in love with Florida, and is trying like 
heck to get Lou Casola to move out there. No dice! Lou is too fond of all his 
buddies here in Illinois (we hope!) . . . By the way, Lou tells us Bill Cannon 
will be the honored guest speaker at the ICMOA meeting, May 14-15, in the 
Pick-Congress Hotel. Bill, incidentally, is treasurer of MOA and is a good 
future bet after Jim Tolisano to achieve the presidency of MOA. . . . Yup, 
Ewald Fischer, Frank Schroeder and Marve Mertes can’t possibly build Fischer 
pool tables fast enough these days. But they’re trying like h— 1. 

It is now “pickup in Springfield” for World Wide’s Art Wood, who recently 
opened a branch there for the convenience of operators who are in and to the 
north of the state capitol. . . . Mort Secore, sales director of Chicago Coin 
Machine Co. tells us production is being pushed to the very limits to satisfy 
the shipping needs to all markets. All of the executives at ChiCoin anticipate 
a very fine Spring sales season. . . . Johnny Frantz, J. F. Frantz Mfg. Co., is 
burning the midnight oil these days because of the increase in orders for his 
counter amusement games. He too looks for one of the best Spring seasons. 

Seeburg’s music and games field engineering staff recently set out from the 
main plant in Windy City to their respective territories with sleek, new station 
wagons (vans). Among the traveling service engineering staffers Avho were in 
the huddle with manager Robert E. Moulder, asst. mgr. Murray Shohat, and 
Freeman E. Woodhull, manager of Seeburg’s field training division (all under 
vice pres. John Chapin) were: Robert C. Zeising, Norman G. Haas, Gene Mich- 
alik, C. S. Britton, Harry E. Jones, Samuel T. Garvin and Leo Halper.

Milwaukee Mentions 


The doors are swinging wide in the Cream City coin machine distributors’ 
showrooms due to the balmy weather. Among the Wisconsin coin machine 
operators seen promenading along Coinrow last week were Martin Oberdiek, 
Martin Oberdiek Co., Horican; Jerome (Red) Jacomet, Red’s Novelty Co.; 
Arnold Jost, Arnold’s Coin Machine Service; Jim Stecher, Novelty Service Co.; 
genial Doug Opitz, Wisconsin Novelty Co.; Joe Beck, Mitchell Novelty Co.; 
Orville Carnitz, Badger Novelty Co., and many more. . . . Nate Victor, of S. L. 
London Music Co., gathered up his family last week and took off for what he 
hopes to be a very relaxing vacation. It’s a two-weeker. . . . Clint Pierce, the 
genial Squire of Brodhed, was re-elected last Tuesday evening, April 19, to the 
chairmanship of the Monroe County (Wisconsin) board of directors. Clint, who 
holds more chairmanships constantly than you can shake a stick at, has been 
chairman of the county board since 1957. He now serves a two-year term since 
the reapportionment program. . . . Joel Kleiman and Sam Cooper, of Pioneer 
Sales & Services, report that sales on all types of coin-operated equipment are 
increasing considerably as resort business is beginning to move. There has 
been a heavy upsurge consequently on deliveries of music, amusement games 
and vending machines. A visitor at Pioneer last week was Paul Huebsch, 
regional sales manager of Rowe AC Mfg. Co. . . . Harry Jacobs and Russ 
Townsend, United, Inc., are laboring on two programs of late. (1) A new 
service school campaign, and (2) a new sales promotional plan. . . . W T hen 
Empire execs Joe Robbins and Jack Burns visited Bob Rondeau in his bailiwick 
in Menominee, Michigan they discussed Empire’s increased activity because of 
the seasonal increase in sales caused by the approach of the budding resort 
season.

VISITING ANGELS — Dean McMurdie of Circle International tells us that 
we had two distinguished visitors to our town. Jack Harper, president of Rowe 
Manufacturing, and Pat O’Mally, president of Automatic Canteen were here 
for the opening league game of the California Angels at their new Anaheim 
Stadium. They came to observe their automatic-vending and catering system 
at the new ball park. Here’s wishing the Angels and the new stadium a suc- 
cessful first season in Anaheim — with millions of hungry-thirsty fans! Also 
from Dean, he has high aspirations for the vending potential in Japan, and 
looks for the day when exports there will surpass the European Continent. 
BILLIARDS BIG BUSINESS — Frank Mencuri, who we haven’t talked to in 
some time, informs us that everyone at Advance Automatic Sales Co. is await- 
ing a large shipment of Electra Pool tables from U.S. Billiards. Frank says 
it is the perfect combination of an electric amusement game and a pool table. 
It is genuine slate, 2 player or 2 team scoring. This insures regulation pool 
table action. Some of the other features of this table are: six pocket action 
from one end play, steel coin chute door, advance scoring-pocket, separate 
locked cash box to set your mind at rest, laminated rails and cabinets, H 
frame leg construction, adjustable leg levelleis and finally an adjustable bolt 
and tee nut cushions. . . . From Bill Hoppel of Badger Sales, we get the 
news that many of his pool tables and recreation equipment were on display 
at the 1966 Income Property Owners Show held from Apr. 14, thru Api\ 17, 
at the Shrine Exposition Hall. ... We were just in time to catch Gary 
Sinclair, legional manager of Wurlitzer, who was visiting here in Los Angeles. 
He tells us that Ken Siler was transferred to the San Fi-aneisco office. We’ll 
miss him, but we hope he likes it up there. Robert McCoy has just been added 
to the shipping dept. Leonard Hicks, California factory service engineer, is 
now holding schools in Arizona and New Mexico. 

FROM THE RECORD RACKS — At Luenhagen’s the Solle Sisters report to 
us that Ruth Wallis was in to visit them. Her new single “I’m The Sexiest 
Gal In Town,” has just been released. Also her daughter Ronnie Wallis just 
l-eleased her new single “Sailor Boy.” Both songs reported selling strong at 
Luenhagen. Buddy Robinson of Califoi-nia Music, says that he is geting heavy 
action on “When A Man Loves A Woman,” by Percy Sledge. . . . George 
Muraoka of Simon Distributing, says he is running very low on equipment 
as the arcade season approaches. He has another large shipment of phono- 
graphs depai-ting for the Far East this week. 

THE HOT LINE RINGS — From Struve Distiibuting Co., Stan Larson lets us 
in on the news that there will be more school for ops. C. S. Britt, who con- 
ducted a class here in Los Angeles, will be holding it in Phoenix the week of 
the 25th. . . . Speaking of fishing we get the news from Paul A. Laymon 
Inc. that Bill Fritz the piscator of Pico Blvd, just l-etui-ned from a few days

Houston Happenings 


The Don Mahoney & Jeanna Clai-e Productions, Inc., 9600 Main St., Houston, 
recently moved into the phonograph record and tape recording field with Tear 
Drop label. This move resulted after Don and Jeanna, both well known Radio 
and TV personalities, completed a tour of the Far East for entertainment of 
American Aimed Forces. Their version of World War Two hits “Soldier’s 
Last Lettei’,” written by Ernest Tubbs and Sgt. Henry Stewart and “At Mail 
Call Today” by Gene Autry and Fred Rose, were so well received by the 
troops that they were first selected for reproduction on Tear Dx-op. Both num- 
bers started with a bang and are steadily increasing Locally and Nationally 
in populai'ity. Don Mahoney and Jeanna Clare were among first artists of this 
area to record dii'ectly on cartridge tape. . . . Still active in the ti'ade and 
talkative as ever is old time local operator Guy Ellis. . . . Evelyn Osborn, who

to front entxance. Big State, one of the big time operating firms here is 
owned and managed by Jack Stazo who himself was president of local op- 
eiators association during all the years it survived. . . . Paul W. (Skeeter) 
Alford, former Houstonian and light hand man for Morris Liedecker, leading 
coin machine operator of Corpus Christi, died suddenly some three weeks ago 
of heart ailment. Our sincerest, if belated condolences to his widow Earlene 
and two daughters. Besides the coin machine operations, Skeeter looked after 
other numerous business holdings of Mr. Liedecker in Corpus. Skeeter was no 
doubt the best friend that Robert Wright, youngest brother of Yours Truly, 
ever had. . . . Local music opeiator R. L. Merritt has a lucrative and depend- 
able side line in form of a local distributorship franchise for the Frantz Oil 
Cleaner for all types and models automobiles. ... At family reunion on 
Easter Sunday afternoon, enjoyed lengthy visit with A. F. (AI) Lemke, dean 
of Houston coin machine operators. He was threatening as usual to move 
into “operator emeritus” status but his wife Pauline stated with considerable 
conviction that so long as he was able to get about and chew half a plug of 
thick Tinsley daily he would be in there pitching. Al, spry as a cricket, said he 
was just now in his prime which happens to be 77 years young. . . . Con-

Focus On— 

Bally Mfg* Co* 


Shown at left — main Bally plant on Bel- 
mont Ave., Chicago, Illinois. 



Rockwell Ave Ballyplant 
contributes 15,000 
square feet of space to 
the Bally complex. The 
specialty here is wire 
cable assembly — the 
“nervous system” of 
Ballygames. 


Plant of Grand Wood- 
working Co., Bally sub- 
sidiary, provides 40,000 
square feet of floor 
space toward producing 
cabinets, playfields and 
other Bally wood com- 
ponents. 



The Bally Manufacturing Company, 
easily one of the world’s largest and 
aldest of today’s major producers of 
coin-operated amusement machines, 
began back in 1931 in a small shop 
with less than 100 employees. Over the 
years, that small shop has been subse- 
quently replaced by facilities offering 
over 165,000 square feet of industrial 
space and the 100 workers have swelled 
to 1,500. 

When asked for the firm’s formula 
for success, Bally’s president Bill 
O’Donnell responded: “Bally’s peren- 
nial good fortune is based upon the 
policy of investing a considerable por- 
tion of company income in research, 
design and engineering ... a policy 
which results in the continuous inven- 
tion of new and attractive amusement 
ideas and the continuous improvement 
Df mechanical and electrical mecha- 
nisms.” 

Bally’s manufacturing arm, the Lion 
Mfg. Corp., produces all “Ballygames” 
From component parts to finished game 
through cooperative production at three 
alants in Chicago. The main Bally 
plant, on Belmont Ave., provides 110,- 
300 square feet of factory floor space 
and also the headquarters for the 
Firm’s executives. Here Ballygames are 


designed and the tools engineered and 
built for large volume production of 
precision parts. Personnel of the main 
Bally plant are responsible for the as- 
sembly of game units and for assembly 
and inspection of completed machines. 

Bally’s Rockwell Ave. plant contrib- 
utes 15,000 square feet to the com- 
pany’s industrial complex and is en- 
tirely devoted to the assembly of intri- 
cate wire cables which comprise the 
“nervous system” of Bally games. 

Finally the Grand Woodworking Com- 
pany plant, wholly owned Bally subsidi- 
ary, provides 40,000 square feet of ad- 
ditional floor space to the manufacture 
of cabinets, playfields and other wood 
components of the firm’s amusement 
machines. 

The executive echelon at Bally num- 
bers several familiar faces to the coin 
machine industry and many behind the 
scenes names who plan and supervise 
the movement of the giant industrial 
complex from the germ of a new ma- 
chine idea, to its design, to the re-tool- 
ing of the assembly line, to the day 
when the responsibility for capitalizing 
on the new game rests on the shoul- 
ders of the sales department. 

In addition to O’Donnell, the leading 
powers at Bally are: general manager 
John A. Britz, secretary and controller 


Willis H. Brockhoff, research and de- 
velopment director Herman L. Seiden, 
chief engineer Joseph E. Lally, chief 
project engineer Thomas V. Mick, sales 
manager Paul C. Calamari and public 


relations director Herb Jones. As their 
guests, the readers are invited to take 
a pictorial tour of the Bally manufac- 
turing facilities and watch as the idea 
of a game is brought to life. 



The Bally engineering department — here the new 
game is translated from the designers’ ideas into 
the hundreds of precise and minutely detailed 
drawings and specifications which direct the manu- 
facturing process. 



A section of the routing department at the Grand 
Woodworking Company is shown above. Here the 
cabinet panels are fabricated. Ultimately they will 
be painted at Bally's ventilated spray booths and 
decorative designs will be applied. 



View of Bally punchpress dept, shows a portion of 
the stamping machines in one of the most com- 
pletely equipped toolrooms in the coin machine 
business. Here the game components made of 
steel, brass and other metals are fashioned. 



Photograph shows one of a dozen Bally cable form- 
ing lines where cables often containing 1,700 feet 
of wire in 45 different code colors are assembled 
by skilled women. 


Shown above is one of the numerous Bally cable 
soldering lines at which the cables are secured to 
the connectors . . . “serpentine highways of wire 
for the tireless messengers of electric impulses.” 


View of Bally playfield inspection department shows 
specially designed swivel fixtures which permit in- 
spectors to more efficiently examine both top and 
bottom of the playfield.

UMC Stockholders 
Hear Glowing Report 

WILMINGTON — Universal Match 
Corporation achieved record results 
for the first quarter of this year with 
sales of $27,939,930, an increase of 12 
per cent over a year ago, and net in- 
come of $1,639,373, an increase of 57 
per cent, James R. Brown, Jr., presi- 
dent, announced here last week at the 
company’s annual meeting of stock- 
holders. 

The company’s earnings for the 
three months ended March 31, 1966 
were equal to 32 cents per share on 
the 5,143,967 shares of common stock 
outstanding, as compared with 20 
cents per share on the 5,193,425 shares 
outstanding a year ago. 

At the meeting, stockholders ap- 
proved changing the name of the com- 
pany from Universal Match Corpora- 
tion to UMC Industries, Inc. The 
change will be effective on June 1, 
1966. 

“The name UMC Industries broadly 
describes our company for what it is 
— a highly diversified, industrial cor- 
poration serving several industries,” 
Brown said. “I want to emphasize, 
however, that this development does 
not imply any reduced interest in the 
match industry. The production of 
match books is a good business for 
UMC and is very permanently in the 
company’s corporate plans for the 
future.” 

Brown described UMC’s first quar- 
ter results as “the best in the com- 
pany’s history. It reflects a strong na- 
tional economy, increased UMC prod- 
uct acceptance, and labor peace 
throughout our operations,” he said. 
“We are particularly pleased with 
pi ogress in the vending and automat- 
ed industrial machinery fields. 

“All in all, assuming current mar- 
ket strengths, we look forward to a 
year of sound growth in business vol- 
ume and profitability.” All of the com- 
pany’s directors were re-elected for 
the ensuing year by UMC’s stock- 
holders.

NAMA To Celebrate 
30th Anny In 1966 



A series of year-long events in 
conjunction with the association’s 
30th Anniversary have been ini- 
tiated by the National Automatic 
Merchandising Association when a 
banner symbolizing the anniversary 
was hung above the entrance of the 
NAMA office in Chicago. Thomas 
B. Hungerford (left), executive di- 
rector, offers suggestions to Ann 
Metzger of the NAMA staff on the 
placement of the 30th Anniversary 
banner. 


CHICAGO— The National Auto- 
matic Merchandising Association is 
initiating a series of year-long- 
events in connection with its 30th 
Anniversary, Thomas B. Hunger- 
ford, NAMA executive director, 
announced last week. 

Highlights of the Anniversary 
program, which began this month 
and will conclude at the 1966 
Western Conference, include the 
publication of a history of NAMA’s 
30 Years of Service to the Vending 
Industry, a 30th Anniversary mem- 
bership recruiting campaign, and 
recognition of long-standing mem- 
bers of the association and those 
members still living who attended 
the original organizational meeting 
in 1936, Hungerford said. The 1966 
Convention and Trade Show of Au- 
tomatic Merchandising will be des- 
ignated as the 30th Anniversary 
Convention. 

Founded September 14, 1936, the 
association has achieved many ac- 
complishments during its 30-year 
history, Hungerford said. 

Among these accomplishments 
are the federal anti-slug law of 
1944, the U. S. Public Health Serv- 
ice Ordinance and Code for vend- 
ing machine sanitation, the ma- 
chine evaluation program conduc- 
ted at Indiana and Michigan State 
Universities, and the coinage law 
which was enacted by Congress 
last year. 

Since 1936, NAMA has grown 
from its original seven members to 
1,550 companies. In its 30 years 
NAMA has elected 16 presidents. 
Hungerford said, “it is remarkable 
that all past presidents are still 
living.” 

“While the number of member 
services and programs has grown 
and changed with the vending in- 
dustry, the basic objectives of 
joint action for the benefit of the 
members as well as the public they 
serve, still guide NAMA today as 
they did in 1936,” Hungerford said.

BILL CANNON TO SPEAK 
AT ICMOA MEETING 


CHICAGO- — Lou Casola, president of 
Illinois Coin Machine Operators’ As- 
sociation (ICMOA), announced last 
week that Bill Cannon, prexy of 
Cannon Coin Machine Company, 
Haddonfield, New Jersey, and treas- 
urer of Music Operators of America 
(MOA), will be the guest speaker at 
the Quarterly Meeting, Saturday and 
Sunday, May 14-15, in the Pick-Con- 
gress Hotel in this city. 

Cannon, who has been considerably 
involved for several years in MOA’s 
legislative problems, will discuss the 
very lively copyright question during 
the session. He will also dwell at 
length on the value of contracts as 
logical, binding agreements with lo- 
cations. 

Cannon claims that most locations 
in his particular area are under con- 
tract with the operators there. He 
feels that much missionary work on 
the part of responsible MOA officers 
and directors will have to be done in 
this area of the coin machine busi- 
ness to get the nation’s operators in- 
terested in contractural agreements. 

Casola had this to say about Can- 
non’s acceptance of ICMOA’s invita- 
tion: “We are very delighted over 
having Bill Cannon as our honored 
guest speaker at our big Spring 
meeting. He has electrified so many 
of our national MOA members with 
his sparkling drive and superabun- 
dant initiative whenever his varied 
talents were needed in planning cam- 
paigns for membership, liasion con- 
tact with phonograph record and al- 
lied music and entertainment execu- 
tives, etc. 

“And, we should certainly add 
that Bill ranks very high in every- 
one’s esteem in MOA nationally, and 
in the coin machine industry gen- 
erally.” 


WHAT A TIMETABLE: 
WURLITZER SERVICE 
REPS CROSS COUNTRY 

N. TONAWANDA, N. Y.— Early this 
year, C. B. Ross (Wurlitzer serv- 
ice manager) increased his field serv- 
ice force and stated that Wurlitzer 
would bring service schools to loca- 
tions to train operator servicemen — 
entailing little expense to the opera- 
tor. This formula has been so success- 
ful, according to Ross, that the force 
of field service representatives has 
been on the go almost constantly. 
Schools have been held for five-day 
periods; one day; one evening, two 
days or a day and night. From At- 
lanta to New Orleans to Buffalo — 
that’s the recap of the recent move- 
ments of Ross’s team. Upon comple- 
tion of the school in Atlanta, Ross and 
Karel Johnson, field service represent- 
ative, pushed on to New Orleans 
where a two-day school was held for 
operator servicemen in the Cajun 
Capital. Forty-nine men journeyed to 
the Wurlitzer Branch on Baronne 
Street where professors Ross and 
Johnson held forth on March 28th and 
29th. The lights burned brightly into 
the night and all phases of circuitry 
and mechanical operation were 
covered. 

Host Bob Dupuy, manager of the 
Wurlitzer New Orleans branch, pro- 
vided a buffet lunch each day, and 
pretty Wurlitzer staffer Kay Johnson 
added the touch of glamour while 
serving the widely-known “poor boy” 
sandwiches. 

Among the many operators and 
servicemen who attended the New 
Orleans session were: James Aucoin 
and Robert Johnson of AM Amuse- 
ment Co.; E. L. Marsalis, Karl Poley, 
Joseph Greco, and Leo Flores of 
Marsalis Mansion; the brothers Joe 
and Pete of Nastasi Distributing Co.; 
Gary O’Quin, Bill Penix, Charles R. 
Millis, Woodrow Simmons, H. A. 
Smith and Tony Nastasi of M & M 
Amusement Co.; Jack Singleton and 
Nathan Sanders of Coin Mart, Inc.; 
Abe Pereira, George Boudreaux, Euc- 
lid Boudreaux of Lafourche Novelty 
Co.; C. B. Shive and V. L. Standley 
of Yazoo Novelty Co.

Wednesday, March 2nd. The follow- 
ing servicemen attended: Harold 
Miller, Kenny Nunes, Bob Poole, 
Oscar Nelson, Fred Claudey and M.

rone, F. N. Pederson, M. R. Casson, 
Tino Sabuco, Tom Cooper, Tim

out of the Los Angeles branch, 
traveled to Portland, Oregon on 
March 22nd and 23rd, where he con- 
ducted a concentrated course at Mel- 
ody Music Company. Area service- 
men who comprised the class were: 
Bob Jordan, Howard Severn, Bob
